Two species of the genus Dufourea have the same scientific name, Dufourea longicornis (WARNCKE, 1979) distributed in the Middle East, and Dufourea longicornis WU, 1982 distributed in China. Dufourea wuae is a new name for Dufourea longicornis WU, 1982. The female of Dufourea wuae is described for the first time, and an updated checklist of the Chinese species of Dufourea is given; there are 29 species in total. Most species are distributed in southern China. Twenty-five of the Chinese species are endemic; only four are distributed in other areas of the western and eastern Palaearctic.
