Abstract: The genus Menaccarus Amyot & Serville, 1843 is recorded for the first time
from China and represented by a new species, M. (Orocephalus) caii sp. nov. The
new species, collected in the Gurbantunggut Desert (Xinjiang), is similar to the
Irano-Turanian M. (Orocephalus) deserticola Jakovlev, 1900 and it can be
distinguished from the latter mainly by characters of the male genitalia.
