Chinese specimens examined. Type specimens of Wohlfahrtiodes mongolicus Chao & Zhang, 1988  : CHINA: Neimenggu: Holotype, male, Qog B, 29.VI.1978  ; paratypes: 19 males, Erenhot, 10¯ 12.VII.1972; all collected by C.M. Chao (all ZMCAS).

Distribution. CHINA: Neimenggu (Erenhot, Qog B); Palaearctic Region.

Remarks. The species Asiosarcophila kaszabi  was given as a first record from China by Zhang et al. (2015), with no mention of the much earlier record by Liu & Wu (1986). We have not been able to locate the material referred to by Liu & Wu (1986), and while the description does not fit with Asiosarcophila kaszabi  , it does not allow us to make an identification. Important features mentioned by Liu & Wu (1986) are especially [our translation from the Chinese original]: “Frons about 1/3 as broad as head width”, “arista very long with short plumosity in basal 1/2”, “[abdominal] tergites 2–4 with a median black stripe and a pair of circular lateral spots”, and “cercus small and black, triangular in lateral view, with sharp apex; surstylus brown, spoon-like, surstylus longer than cercus in lateral and dorsal views; postgonite elongated and with a hook-like tip, pregonite yellowishbrown and with brownish black tip, spearhead-like, without bristles; phallus brownish black with elongated lateral sclerotizations”. The short, triangular cercus is here taken as evidence for assignment to the subfamily Paramacronychiinae  , but the remaining features do not match particularly well with A. kaszabi  or any other genus or species.
