LIANG HE, HONG-ZHANG ZHOU

Abstract


Three new species of the subgenus Ocypus s. str. of the genus Ocypus Leach, 1819 are described from South China: Ocypus (s. str.) liui sp. nov., Ocypus (s. str.) aglaosemanticus sp. nov. and Ocypus (s. str.) pterosemanticus sp. nov. Line drawings and color illustrations of adults and genitalia of the new species, as well as of Ocypus (s. str.) rhoetus Smetana, 2007 and Ocypus (s. str.) weisei Harold, 1877 are given. A key to Chinese species of the subgenus Ocypus Leach, 1819 is provided.
