Lattke (2004) - Humeral angles forming distinct denticles. It was not possible to examine any specimens of this species. The description and figures in Wu and Xiao (1987) would place G. sinensis in the taivanensis group based on the shape of the petiole and the subpetiolar process and the small eyes.
