Sinaeschnidia cancellosa is a junior synonym.  The current classification is: Aeschnidium heishankowense 



"Recently, a great quantity of adult dragonflies with fore and / or hindwings in connection with bodies have fortunately been recovered from the Yixian Formation in Beipiao City (Figure 4A–E, G). They were regarded by Ren et al. (1995) as a new species, Sinaeschnidia cancellosa Ren, 1995, but I do not recognize any difference in morphology between it and Aeschnidium heishankowense."
