Checklist of Sesiini   species from China (excluding Taiwan)

Recently, a checklist of the Sesiidae   of Mainland China and Taiwan was published by Jin et al. (2008). This study listed 13 species of Sesiini   . However, several species known from China were omitted, and none of the taxa described by Arita & Gorbunov (2002) in their revision of Sesiini   from Taiwan were included. Therefore, similar to our recent checklist of the Paranthrenini   of China (Kallies et al. 2014), we here present an updated checklist of the Sesiini   from Mainland China based on our own results and data published previously ( Yang 1977; Yang & Wang 1989; Spatenka et al. 1999; Xu et al. 1994, 1999; Kallies 2007, 2011; Jin et al. 2008; Arita et al. 1994; Arita 2011). It currently comprises 20 species; however, several additional undescribed species are known to the authors and many more can be expected to be found.

Trilochana caseariae Yang & Wang, 1989   syn. nov. is established as a junior synonym of Trilochana scolioides Moore, 1879   . Sphecosesia rhodites Kallies & Arita, 2004   and Lenyra ashtaroth (Westwood, 1848)   are reported from China for the first time.
