Chlaenius (Amblygenius) sinensis Chaudoir, 1856 

Chaudoir described this species from specimens originating from Hong Kong. Chaudoir (1876 b) noted this species as quite common in Hong Kong. Gemminger & Harold (1868), Hill (1982) and Kirschenhofer (2003 a) also list this species for Hong Kong. Hill (1982) gives it the common name Shiny Ground Beetle.

Ƌ W.T., 1.xii. 10, in grass at circa 200 m alt, under rock, together with what looked like Craspedophorus mandarinus  or very similar species. Biology: Imago found throughout the year. This species seems to like grassy, dry hilltops. Can be attracted to light, it is fully winged and capable of flight.
