The new species is similar to Kapsa mingorensis (Ahmed, 1970) (see also Dworakowska et al. 1978), but the aedeagus has a pair of basal processes, without apical vestiture (Figs 30, 31) and the preatrium is not expanded in lateral view (Fig. 30).
The new species is named for its type locality: Yanhe.
