Sathytes larinus Yin & Li   (in: Yin et al. 2012, p842).

Material examined. 1 ♂, ‘ China: Zhejiang, Longquan City , Fengyangshan N. R., Huang-mao-jian (黄Ŧ±), 27°53’23.75”N, 119°10’32.88”E, mixed leaf litter, sifted, 1580 m, 01.v.2016, Jiang, Liu & Zhou leg.’ ( SNUC) GoogleMaps   .

Comments. Sathytes larinus   was described from one male and one female at Guiheshang Village (OiAE±LJ) in southern Fujian, and is here newly recorded from the main mountain peak of Fengyangshan Nature Reserve. The new record extends the known distributional range of this species for some 400 km in the northeast direction. The male antennal club ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 B–D) and the aedeagus ( Fig. 4E View FIGURE 4 ) of the Zhejiang population ( Fig. 4A View FIGURE 4 ) are both inconspicuously relatively longer than those of the Fujian population, which is regarded as intraspecific variation.

Distribution. China: Zhejiang (new provincial record), Fujian.
