Abstract:The original description of Trachys cuneiferus Kurosawa, 1959 is simple and lack of key features as well as drawings. In this study, 4 Trachys specimens (3 males and 1 female) were collected from the Maoershan National Nature Reserve (Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region) in 2018, and the specimens were identified as Trachys cuneiferus Kurosawa, 1959. The morphological characteristics of T. cuneiferus were redescribed and compared to the similar species (T. saundersi Lewis, 1893, T. auricollis Saunders, 1873 and T. toringoi Kurosawa, 1951). Moreover, the detailed feature pictures and the photographs of the species were provided. The results showed that although the villi among the Trachys species were highly similar, T. cuneiferus could be discriminated by the luster of head and pronotum, the length to width ratio of clypeus, the shape of prosternum, the lateral margin of elytron, and aedeagus.
