Type material: Holotype: ♀, re-written (original label is in Chinese): China, Sichuan, Kangding, 25-VIII-1939, collector unknown (IZAS).
Holotype of this species was diagnosed as male in the original description without being dissected (Chen 1942). Actually the holotype is female. Its spermatheca is illustrated here (Fig. 42). The updated catalogue of Galerucinae (Beenen 2010) showed that this species belonged to a subgenus Neogalerucella of Galerucella. In this study, we found that the disc of pronotum is entirely covered by hairs. So we think that this species should be remained in Pyrrhalta.
