Pselaphodes monoceros Yin & Hlaváč, 2013

Pselaphodes monoceros Yin & Hlaváč (in: Yin et al., 2013: 57 View Cited Treatment )

Material examined: 1 ♂; CHINA, ‘MDOiṞBọ ø, ṈLJĀẈẌď 4.5 km ½, 2016. VI.7 D, 2670 m, N° 27.8202, E° 91.7576, Ẓợ ^: ṃừǿ ( China : Xizang, Cuona County, Le Township , 4.5 km of Bian-Fang-Liu-Lian Highway, Hong-Bin Liang leg.)’ ( IZCAS) GoogleMaps .

Comments: The male of this species is most similar to that of P. unicornis Bekchiev & Hlaváč, 2013 and P. corniger Huang & Yin, 2019 from Nepal based on the modified, protuberant clypeus ( Bekchiev & Hlaváč, 2013; Huang & Yin, 2019). It differs from P. unicornis in the different shape of the metaventral processes and a much stouter aedeagus, and from P. corniger in the presence of an apical spur of protibiae (protibiae with a preapical spur in P. corniger ), a different form of the metaventral processes, and the almost symmetric median lobe of the aedeagus (aedeagus strongly asymmetric in P. corniger ).

Distribution: This species was described from five males and one female collected from Le Township, at an altitude of 2500 m. Its distribution is currently restricted to Le Township of Cuona County.
