Parazyginella lingtianensis Chou & Zhang, 1985
Body flattened. Vertex conically produced, middle length nearly equal to width and length of pronotum; coronal suture distinct. Head and pronotum whitish yellow. Scutellum and venter yellow. Forewing with base of 1st and 4th apical cells at same level; 3rd apical cell triangular and with a dark spot; hind margin of brochosome field and veins in apical area of wing touched with dark brown.
Abdominal apodemes elongate, reaching beyond 5th abdominal sternite.
Male pygofer strongly sclerotized, with short, finger-like process caudo-dorsally and few scattered microsetae. Subgenital plates broad at base, distally abruptly tapered to short narrow apex, with few macrosetae basally. Paramere simple, with central part expanded, apical part tapering to acute apex and strongly bent. Connective with short arms and medial lobe present. Aedeagus asymmetrical with basal part strongly sclerotized with short preatrium and large dorsal apodeme, the latter laterally compressed with distal anterior region membranous and distal posterior region strongly curved anteriorly; shaft elongate, with a single elongate apical process on one side; gonopore obscure.
Parazyginella resembles Zyginella Löw, but differs in its more greatly developed dorsal apodeme of the aedeagus and male pygofer with a dorsal finger-like process and without long macrosetae (Figs 16, 17).
