Type material

Holotype: ♂, China: Guizhou, Huishui, Yantang (26°08'N, 106°39'E), collected from bamboo (Dendrocalamus affinis), 31 May 2008, X.-S. Chen and L. Yang (IEGU); paratypes: 3 ♀♀, same data as holotype (IEGU); 3 ♂♂, 4♀♀, Guizhou, Changshun, Weiyuan (26°02'N, 106°27'E), collected from bamboo (Dendrocalamus affinis), 30 Sept. 1997, X.-S. Chen and L. Yang (IEGU), one male and female deposited in BMNH; 3 ♀♀, Guangdong, Guangzhou, Baiyunshan (23°10'N, 113°18'E), collected from bamboo, 21 Nove. 2006, X.-S. Chen (IEGU).

Etymology

The new species is named after the host plant bamboo (Bambusoideae).

Description

Body length (from apex of vertex to tip of forewings): male 4.03–4.15 mm (N = 5); female 3.75–4.22 mm (N = 10); forewing length: male 3.25–3.30 mm (N = 5); female 3.05–3.31 mm (N = 10).

Coloration

Milky white to pale yellow (Figs 13-16). Forewing cells rather clouded with faint pale brown; distal portions of tarsi dark brown (Figs 3, 13, 14).

Head and thorax

External features as in diagnosis. Crown shorter medially than width between eyes (0.14:1). Pronotum shorter medially than width at widest part (0.55:1), longer medially than crown (4.0:1). Scutellum shorter medially than pronotum (0.31: 1). Forewing longer medially than width at widest part (2.95:1). Hindwing longer medially than width at widest part (3.65:1).

Abdomen

Male abdomen with 3S apodemes subparallel, extended to midlength of segment V (Fig. 5).

Male genitalia

Aedeagus with both pair of preapical processes curved laterally, lower pair slightly shorter than more dorsal pair (Figs 9, 10, 11); shaft apex blunt and rounded. Other features as in generic diagnosis.

Female genitalia

Seventh sternite (Fig. 12) broad basally, triangularly produced posteriorly with rather rounded apex.

Host plant

Bamboo (Dendrocalamus affinis (Rendle) Mcclure) (Figs 17, 18).

Distribution

Southern China (Guizhou and Guangdong) (Fig. 19).

Remarks

This new species is very closely related to Sweta hallucinata Viraktamath & Dietrich, 2011 from Thailand and India, but can be distinguished by the aedeagus with apex blunt and rounded (tapering in hallucinata); the lower pair of subapical processes slightly shorter than more dorsal pair (in hallucinata, the lower pair are distinctly longer than the more upper pair); male abdomen with the 3S apodemes extended to midlength of the segment V (extended to midlength of the segment IV in hallucinata); the female abdominal sternite VII more or less triangular (relatively rounded in hallucinata).
