Amblypsilopus insensibile ( Yang, 1995) comb. nov.

Chrysosoma insensibile Yang, 1995: 180 . Type locality: China: Xizang, Bome.

Cercus strip-like, wide at middle to apical quarter, blade-like at apical quarter, sharp apically, with 1 strong spinous dorsal bristle at middle and 1 relatively long ventral bristle at apical quarter.

Distribution. China (Tibet).

Remarks. This species was originally described under Chrysosoma . However, its arista-like stylus is distinctly shorter than the head width, which usually should be at least longer than the combined length of the head and thorax in Chrysosoma . The ventral bristles of the fore femora are also weaker than on other species of Chrysosoma . These two features, however, usually are present in Amblypsilopus . Based on this evidence we transfer this species to Amblypsilopus from Chrysosoma . The species has a remarkably wide distribution and habitats, from broad-leaf forests at 870 m to shrubs at 2415 m.
