Body yellowish-brown (Fig. 38). The vertex inverted “V” shaped, as wide as pronotum (Fig. 38), weakly curved in profile, slightly away from the pronotum (Fig. 39); eyes brown; ocelli located between the eyes, its surrounding yellow, below gray (Fig. 40). The pronotum pale-yellow, anterior margin curved prominent, posterior margin slightly concave. Scutellum triangular, yellowish, scatter dark notches, base-lateral sides gray, post-middle region with one deep notch (Fig. 38). Forewings hyaline, end area chocolate-brown, veins fuscous white spots distinctly (Fig. 39).
Male genitalia Pygofer broad, the apex acute in lateral view and produced several setae on the ventral margin (Fig. 45). Subgenital plate slender with many marginal setae (Fig. 46). Aedeagus broader basally, shaft strongly sinuate in lateral view, apex tapering, and with two pairs of processes, the apical processes located dorsal margin, serrated, the subapical processes located lateral margin, reflexed in ventral aspect view, apex digitation, the processes with a membranous connection (Figs 47–48). Style parallel-margined and angled on the apical third, the apex obliquely truncate, produced a narrow truncate process on dorsal margin (Fig. 49). Dorsal connective complex and sinuate, apex bulbous, produced a long process from caudal margin to dorsad, and mesal-ventral apical margin minutely serrated (Fig. 50). Connective broader basally, a finger-like protrusion in middle, both sides bent to the inside (Figs 51–52).
Female. Similar to male in coloration and appearance. The seventh sternite 1.5 times the sixth sternite, carved in middle-posterior margin (Fig. 41).
Measurement. Length (including tegmen): ♂, 3.2–3.5 mm;♀, 3.8–4.0 mm.
Holotype ♂, China: Guangdong Prov., Nankunshan, 24 August 2010, collected by Hu Li (GUGC). Paratypes: 1♂1♀, same data as holotype; 2♀♀, Guangdong Prov., Nankunshan, 22 August 2010, collected by Junqiang Ni (GUGC).
This species is similar to Pedionis (Pedionis) yunnana Zhang & Viraktamath, 2010 but can be distinguished from the latter by having the apical processes on aedeagal shaft serrated; the subapical processes reflexed ventral aspect view, apex digitations.
The new species name refers to the type locality.
