Abstract

This is the second paper of a series dealing with the Chinese fauna of the large genus Pselaphodes Westwood, 1870. Twelve new species and a new synonym are presented: P. bomiensis sp. nov. (Xizang); P. biwenxuani sp. nov. (Xizang); P. condylus sp. nov. (Guizhou); P. cuonaus sp. nov. (Xizang); P. fengtingae sp. nov. (Zhejiang); P. gongshanensis sp. nov. (Yunnan); P. hanmiensis sp. nov. (Xizang); P. jizushanus sp. nov. (Yunnan); P. meniscus sp. nov. (Sichuan); P. parvus sp. nov. (Guizhou); P. pectinatus sp. nov. (Hainan); P. wuyinus Yin et al., 2010 syn. nov. = P. tianmuensis Yin et al., 2010; and P. yanbini sp. nov. (Guizhou). New distributional data and discussion on intraspecific variations of P. tianmuensis and P. aculeus are provided. An updated key is given to assist in distinguishing all so far known Chinese species of Pselaphodes. A checklist of world species of Pselaphodes is also provided.
