This species is similar to Paralaevicephalus gracilipenis Dai, Zhang et Hu in having the subgenital plate process curved at the apex and the aedeagal shaft long and slender, but differs from this and other species in having the connective with arms forked, Y-shaped, with the stem short. Etymology. The species name is derived from the type locality Huaxi.Published as part of Xing, Jichun, Dai, Renhuai & Li, Zizhong, 2009, A taxonomic study of the genus Paralaevicephalus Ishihara (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae), with description of four new species from China, pp. 53-61 in Zootaxa 1979 on pages 57-58, DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.18524
