  author={M. H{\"a}m{\"a}l{\"a}inen and Graham T. Reels and Haomiao Zhang},
A new chlorocyphid damselfly species, Aristocypha aino sp. nov. (holotype male from Jianfengling National Nature Reserve, Hainan Island, China) is described and illustrated for both sexes. Its systematic relationship with other taxa in the genus is discussed. Rhinocypha bifenestrata Fraser, 1922 is ranked as a synonym of Aristocypha cuneata (Selys, 1853), not as a synonym of A. quadrimaculata (Selys, 1853). Rhinocypha chaoi Wilson, 2004 is transferred to the genus Aristocypha.

First fossil occurrence of the jewel damselflies (Odonata: Chlorocyphidae): a new species from the Late Miocene of Styria, Austria
The discovery of a central European species of Chlorocypha as recently as the Late Miocene reveals a much wider range to the family than its generally disjunctive modern distribution, demonstrating a Neogene contraction to their range, likely in connection with climatic cooling, drying, and developing seasonality.
