Abstract: Rupisalda austrosinica sp. nov. is described from Guangdong and Yunnan provinces
of China. The new species is closely related to Rupisalda thailandana (Cobben,
1985). The remaining Oriental species previously included in the ?Saldula
fletcheri? group sensu Cobben (1986) are transferred here to Rupisalda: R.
championi (Drake, 1954) comb. nov., R. edita (Drake & Hoberlandt, 1951)
comb. nov., R. fletcheri (Distant, 1909) comb. nov., and R. pusana (Distant,
1909) comb. nov. The male genitalia and 5th instar nymph of Calacanthia grandis
Cobben, 1985 are described and illustrated for the first time. The following
species are recorded for the first time for some regions of China: Chiloxanthus
kozlovi (Kiritshenko, 1912) from Gansu Province, Micracanthia ornatula (Reuter,
1881) from Jiangsu Province, Saldula fucicola (J. Sahlberg, 1878) from Qinghai
and Sichuan Provinces, Saldula recticollis (Horváth, 1899) from Guangxi
Autonomous Region and Guangdong Province, and Saldula saltatoria (Linnaeus,
1758) from Qinghai Province.
