Pella lugens (GRAVENHORST, 1802)  

( Figs 48–49)

Material examined: China: Gansu: 4 exs. [1 teneral], Lenglong Ling mountains, 60 km NNW Honggu, Jin Sha  

Gorge, 36°52'N, 102°39'E, 2330 m, mixed forest, litter and moss sifted, 12.VII.2011, leg. Schülke (cSch, cAss).

Comment: The previously known distribution of P. lugens   was confined to the West Palaearctic region (including Middle Asia) ( MARUYAMA 2006). The above specimens represent the first record from the East Palaearctic region east of Middle Asia and considerably expand the range

eastwards. The median lobe of the aedeagus of the material from Gansu is illustrated in Figs 48–49.
