Hi John,

      According to this website ( https://projects.ncsu.edu/cals/entomology/museum/homoptera.php ), the type locality of Cercopis hoffmanni was Yao-Gi, China, and it further clarifies that this locality is "near Muping" :

Cercopis hoffmanni Metcalf & Horton 1934. Lingnan Sci. J. 13:418.
Holotype: "Yao-Gi/China/4-8000ft; nearMuping

Subject: [Taxacom] Chinese locality question

Dear colleagues,

If anyone may have a clue as the whereabouts of 'Yao Gi' in China I would
be most grateful. This is in reference to a moth in the Smithsonian
collection that has no date, but refers to an elevation of 4-5,000 feet. I
suspect that it is somewhere in southwestern China. The only other locality
for this species is in Pin-fa in Guizhou province.

Thank you,

John Grehan
