Abstract


Three new species of Tribasodites Jeannel are described and illustrated based on recently collected material in the caves of Guangxi Province: T. bedosae Yin and Li, sp. n., T. deharvengi Yin and Li, sp. n. and T. tiani Yin and Li, sp. n. A key to Chinese troglobitic pselaphine species and a checklist of Tribasodites are presented.
