Sinorogomphus hiten - new for Vietnam

On May 11 in Yen Bai Province I caught two male Chlorogomphus specimens. I kept one and took a few extra photos of the other. Sebastien was of great help in providing me with the article on Sinorogomphus hiten by Sasamoto et al (2011). They described that species for Laos. In the recent overview of all species of Chlorogomphids in Vietnam by Haruki Karube this species is still missing.
