    A new species of the genus Saigona Matsumura, 1910, i.e. Saigona saccus sp. nov., collected from Guiyang Forest Park and Kuankuoshui of Suiyang county, Guizhou province, China, is described and illustrated. The type specimens are deposited in the Institute of Entomology, Guizhou University, China (IEGU).
    Saigona saccus sp. nov. (Fig. 1~11)
    Body length: ♂ 17.3~17.7 mm, 17.6~18.3 mm.
    This new species is similar to Saigona fulgoroides (Walker, 1858), but can be easily distinguished from the latter by characters of aedeagus: phallobase with apical saccate membranous (in the latter, phallobase with apical, dorsal, membranous lobe produced dorsally in lateral view and apical, ventral, membranous lobe small and semi-globose in ventral view).
    Holotype: ♂, Guiyang Forest Park, Guiyang city, Guizhou province, 25 Jun. 2006, by Zhang Pei; Paratypes 3 ♀, data same as holotype; 2 ♂♂, 3 ♀♀, Kuankuoshui, Suiyang county, Guizhou province, 5 Jun. 2010, by Zhang Pei; 2 ♂♂, 4 ♀♀, Kuankuoshui, Suiyang county, Guizhou province, 3 Jun. 2010, by Zhang Bin; 1♀, Kuankuoshui, Suiyang county, Guizhou province, 5 Jun. 2010, by Wang Ying-juan.
    Etymology: The species name is derived from the Hellenic word“saccus”, referring to phallobase with apical saccate membranous.
