  • On December 5, 2012, a specimen of Chodsigoa caovansunga Lunde, Musser and Son, 2003 was collected at Manhao, Gejiu, Yunnan (N23°00′43.0′′, E103°26′18.9′′, 350 m asl). This finding is the first recorded distribution of C. caovansunga in China and outside of the type locality (Mt. Tay Con Linh II, Ha Giang, Vietnam). The length of the head, body, tail and condylo-incisive are longer than those of the specimens from type locality in Vietnam, indicating a generally larger size. Likewise, the cyt-b sequence (GenBank accession number: JX508288) is 98.6% similar to specimens from type locality. The habitat of collection site was a ravine rain forest with banana plantation nearby.
