Macrobiotus cf. richtersi Murray  

Material examined

Fifteen specimens were collected from Ningshan County, over 500 specimens from Mount Taibai   .


This species was reported as a new record for China from Yunnan Province ( Beasley and Cleveland 1996). It was subsequently reported from Hubei Province ( Yang 2007). My specimens fit the description of this species ( Ramazzotti and Maucci 1983; Dastych 1988). It has never been reported from the Tsinling Mountains.
