Mycterothrips gongshanensis sp.n. and M. yelangi sp.n. are described from Southwestern China. Both species have been collected from tea (Camellia sinensis), and M. gongshanensis sp.n. is a potential pest in tea gardens. An identification key is provided to the Mycterothrips species recorded from China.
