3.9–4.5 mm. Female: length: 12.3–18.0 mm, humeral width:
3.8–6.0 mm. Antennomere ratio: male: 14:3:21:16:16:15:
15:13:13:12:14; female: 15:3:21:16:16:15:15:14:14:13:14.
Very similar to G. problematica n. sp. but with more variaties:
1) apex of elytron truncated without teeth (fi gs. 40, 43, 47, 48,
51, 52) or with visible teeth as strong as those of G. problematica
(fi gs. 41, 42, 44, 45, 46, 49, 50), but in that case the sutural
teeth as long as outer teeth or even longer; 2) elytron may have
a sub-median spot of variable size [v. albodiversa Pic (fi gs. 41,
46, 47) with this spot distinct]; 3) the pale transverse median
elytral band variable in size.
Male terminalia (fi gs. 53–64): Tegmen length about 3.0 mm;
lateral lobes stout, each about 0.5 mm long and 0.2 mm wide,
apex with setae subequal or shorter than lateral lobes, with one
small ridge furnished with short and fi ne hairs at the base (in
ventral view); basal piece not bifurcated distally; median lobe
plus median struts slightly curved, a little longer than tegmen
(16: 15); the median struts about half of the whole median lobe
in length; dorsal plate slightly shorter than ventral plate; apex of
ventral plate projected; median foramen elongated, acute angle
about 30 degrees; internal sac about 3 times as long as median
lobe plus median struts, with 2 pairs of basal armature, 2 bands
of supporting armature and 3 rods; 2 longer and stouter rods
each about 2.0 mm, shorter than tegmen, the third, the shorter
one about 1.4 mm. Tergite VIII as broad as long, apex broadly
rounded to truncated, with dense and long setae at each sides
but with fewer and shorter setae in the middle. Ventrite IX
shorter than the ringed part of tegmen. Female genitalia (fi gs.
65–69): Spermathecal capsule composed of an olivary apical
orb and a stalk, stalk twice as long as apical orb. Tignum longer
than abdomen. In our observation, tignum 8.5 mm for an adult
with a 6.6 mm abdomen in ventral view.
Diagnosis. Diff ers from G. problematica n. sp. in having elytral
apical tooth at the outer angle always shorter than sutural tooth.
However this character is not always distinct and the best way
to distinguish these species is to dissect the males and compare
the lateral lobes.
