Abstract

A new Chinese species, Folsomia hubeiensis sp. nov., was described from Hubei province. It is similar to members of spinosa-group in reference to the ventral sensilla on Ant I and the presence of many chaetae on anterior side of manubrium, distal ones of which are arranged as 3 3 in a transversal row. However, it is distinctly distinguished from the members of the group in the long body sensilla, the absence of corner sensilla on Th II, and in the number of laterodistal chaetae on the ventral tube, lateral chaetae of manubrium and posterior chaetae of dentes, and other features. Therefore, a special new group, named hubeiensis-group, is set up for the new species.
