Dorsum brownish yellow. Pair of preapical patches on vertex and medial area of pronotum, milky yellow (Fig. 18). Forewing beige.

Style not long, apex extremely elongate, little less than half length of style; preapical lobe distinct (Fig. 21). Connective Y-shaped with central lobe broad and arms short (Fig. 24). Aedeagal shaft with pair of apical processes, bifurcate near base, upper branch short, tooth-like; lower branch very long; gonopore short (Figs 22, 23); dorsal apodeme slender in lateral view and pretrium expanded laterally at base (Figs 22, 23).

Holotype, male, China: Yunnan Province, Pu’er City, Meizihu Park, 23 July 2008, coll. Yue-hua Song. Paratypes: three males, two females, same date as holotype.
The new species is similar to Kapsa decorata Dworakowska (1981), but the aedeagus has branched apical processes, the lower one much longer than upper one (Figs 22, 23) and the preatrium is expanded laterally at base and the dorsal apodeme is slender (Fig. 22).
The specific name is named for its type locality.
