Pezothrips brunicornis sp. nov. is described and illustrated from China. This new species is similar to Ceratothripoides brunneus Bagnall in appearance, but is easily distinguished from the latter by abdominal sternite VII having only median pair of setae far from posterior margin and close to each other, forewing clavus with discal setae, and male tergite IX with median pair of setae short and stout. Pezothrips bactrianus (Pelikán) is newly recorded for fauna of China; P. frontalis (Uzel) that was previously recorded for China is deleted from the Chinese Thysanoptera checklist.
