Comment: Pella jureceki   was previously known from the Russian Far East, Korea, and the Chinese province Beijing. According to the redescription by MARUYAMA (2006), the species is “blackish brown in ground colour”, but all the examined specimens are completely black. The primary sexual characters of the material from Gansu are illustrated in Figs 58–60. The specimens listed above were collected together with P. cooterorum   (in all localities), in Qinghai also with P. zhoui   and in Gansu with P. lugens   . Unlike P. cooterorum   , P. jureceki   was almost exclusively sifted from leaf litter.
