Two new species of the genus Hymenaphorura are described from the Maoershan National Forest Park, northeast China: H. maoerensis sp. nov. and H. minuta sp. nov. The former seems to be especially similar to H. granulata, H. sensitiva, H. superba and H. nearctica, but differs by a combination of the following characters: 1 submedial chaeta on Th. I tergum, second external papilla in AIIIO simple, inner tooth on unguis absent, chaeta C3 of proximal whorl of tibiotarsi absent, chaetae p2 and p3 on Abd. I—III of roughly subequal in length while S-chaeta weakly developed. H. minuta sp. nov. belongs to a group of species showing 9 chaetae in the distal whorl of the tibiotarsi, but it can easily be distinguished from the other members of the group by the dorsal pso formula.
