Body coloration and appearance similar to Pedionis (Pedionis) lii Zhang & Viraktamath, 2010 but more dark and pronotum slightly concave, with a white belt on posterior margin (Figs 42–44).
Male genitalia. Pygofer broad, obliquely truncate, the apex obtuse in lateral view, produced regularly spike-spines and setae on the ventral margin (Fig. 53). Subgenital plate slender with many setae, several especially long in the end (Fig. 54). Aedeagus broader basally, shaft strongly sinuated, angled heavily on apical third and bulge occurred in middle-dorsal in lateral view; apex tapering, and with two pairs of processes, the apical processes small and produced on dorsal margin, the subapical processes located lateral margin, broad as lamella (Figs 55–56). Style (Fig. 57), dorsal connective (Fig. 58) and connective (Figs 59–60) similar to Pedionis (Pedionis) nankunshanensis sp. n. but differs by mesal-dorsal serration.
Measurement. Length (including tegmen): ♂, 5.2mm.
Holotype ♂, China: Guizhou Prov., Kuankuoshui Nature Reserve, Baishaogou, 7 June 2010, collected by Hu Li (GUGC).
This species is similar to Pedionis (Pedionis) yunnana Zhang & Viraktamath, 2010 but differs markedly from the latter in having the apical processes on aedeagal shaft occurred in dorsal margin; the subapical processes broad, lamella-like; the pygofer with regularly spike-spines and setae on the ventral margin.
Th e species name is derived from the Latin words “tabulatus”, indicating the subapical processes of adeagal shaft are lamella-like.
