Abstract: A new crane fly species Tipula (Vestiplex) lushuiensis Men & Starkevich, sp. nov., is described and illustrated based on materials collected in Yunnan and Tibet, China. Tipula (V.) alyxis Alexander, 1963, T. (V.) guibifida Yang & Yang, 1992, T. (V.) himalayensis Brunetti, 1911, T. (V.) quasimarmorati­pennis Brunetti, 1912 and T. (V.) reposita Walker, 1848 are redescribed and illustrated based on additional morphological characters. Tipula (V.) quasimarmorati­pennis and T. (V.) reposita are listed as new records for the Chinese fauna. Male of T. (V.) quasimarmorati­pennis and females of T. (V.) alyxis, T. (V.) guibifida and T.
