Abstract: A new genus and species of the subfamily Pselaphinae, Lisubatrus dongzhiweii
gen. et sp. nov., is described from the Gaoligong Mountains, southwestern China.
Lisubatrus is assigned to the tribe Batrisini, subtribe Batrisina, and placed in
a group of genera related to Dendrolasiophilus Nomura, 2010. Members of this
group share the characteristic cephalic setose tufts, and have the aedeagus with
a large basal capsule, and a well-developed dorsal lobe. Important diagnostic
features of Lisubatrus are illustrated, and an identification key to distinguish
Lisubatrus from the allied genera is given.
