Records taken from Literature

Neope muirheadi [sic] segonax ; Saito & Vu,2020 : 27, figs.6,♀,6v♀(Un). (Vinh Phuc: Tam Dao)


The specimen shown in Saito & Vu,2020 as Neope muirheadi segonax seems to be this species. I am tentatively including it in this subspecies, however further taxonomic study is needed.
