Abstract: One new species of the subgenus Tipula (Emodotipula Alexander, 1966), Tipula (Emodotipula) yaoluopingensis sp. nov. (Anhui, Southern China), is described and illustrated. A key for identification of known species in this genus is provided. This is the second species of the subgenus Emodotipula from Mainland China. The new species is similar to Tipula (Emodotipula) hemmingseni A­lexander, 1968 in the colors of body and legs, and in the structures of outer gonostylus and inner gonostylus, but separated from the latter by the structure of tergite nine. In addition, Tipula coxitalis Alexander, 1935 and Tipula (Pterelachisus) biaciculifera Alexander, 1937 are redescribed based on new morphological characters and detailed illustrations. Tipula coxitalis is reported from Mainland China for the first time.
