Abstract

Dima tianmuensis Qiu and Kundrata sp. nov. is described from Zhejiang, China. This species differs from its congeners from mainland China and Taiwan by the coloration, length ratio of the basal antennomeres, relatively longer elytra, and shape of male genitalia. Photographs of the habitus and main diagnostic characters of the new species are provided. Altogether, 11 species of Dima are known from mainland China and Taiwan. An identification key and a distribution map for the Chinese Dima species are given.
