The male of Kamimuria guangxia is characterized by the hemiterga being slightly swollen apically. The aedeagal sac is membranous, medially constricted, apex expanded, heart-shaped and mostly covered with fine to tiny spines (Figs 1C, 2B). The new species is similar to Kamimuria atra Sivec & Stark, 2008, a species known both from Vietnam and Thailand, in general body color and features of terminalia, but tergum 8 of the new species has no sensilla basiconica patch.
