Connective Y-shaped with central lobe broad and arms short (Fig. 10). Aedeagal shaft laterally compressed distally, tapered to acute apex in ventral view (Fig. 9), with pair of processes at mid-length; gonopore long; preatrium long and dorsal apodeme short (Figs 8, 9).

Holotype, male, China: Guizhou Province, Mayanghe National Nature Reserve, 4 Oct. 2007, coll. Yue-hua Song. Paratypes: five males, same date as holotype.
The new species is similar to Kapsa biprocessa Song & Li (2008), but can be distinguished mainly by the aedeagus with pair of basal processes close to shaft; the more acute apex of shaft in ventral view with the gonopore longer (Figs 8, 9).
The specific epithet is derived from the Latin word “acuminata” which refers to the acuminate apex of aedeagus in ventral view.
