Abstract

Two new species of the genus Crossodonthina (Collembola: Neanuridae: Neanurinae: Lobellini) are recorded from Mangshan National Nature Reserve, Chenzhou City, Hunan Province and Ruyuan Yao Autonomous County, Guangdong Province, Central-South China. Crossodonthina clavata sp. nov. is characterized by 3+3 uncolored eyes on head; labral chaetotaxy as 0/2, 2; cephalic chaeta O present; cephalic tubercles Dl, L and So fused each other; mandible with 4 basal teeth and five fringed rami; maxilla with two lamellae and each lamella with two apical teeth. Crossodonthina acuminata sp. nov. can be recognized by 3 black eyes per side on head; mandible with 3 basal teeth and 8 rami; all cephalic tubercles independent, chaeta O on tubercle Fr present; cephalic tubercle Di, De on posterior area of head with 2 chaetae each, intermediate between cross and non-cross type chaetotaxy; tubercle De of Th. I with 3(2) chaetae; furcular remnant without chaeta. It is the first record of Neanuridae species from Mangshan National Nature Reserve.
