Abstract

An illustrated key to the six genera of the Cardiochilinae known to occur in China is presented, with three genera, Austerocardiochiles Dangerfield, Austin, and Whitfield, Eurycardiochiles Dangerfield, Austin, and Whitfield and Psilommiscus Enderlein, reported for the first time. Three new species of Austerocardiochiles are described: A. tujiazu Chen, Whitfield and He, A. xibozu Chen, Whitfield and He, and A. zhejiangensis Chen, Whitfield and He. Four species of Eurycardiochiles are reported: E. occidentalis Dangerfield and Austin, and the new species E. dongzu Chen, Whitfield and He, E. shezu Chen, Whitfield and He, and E. jiulong Chen, Whitfield and He. Psilommiscus is new to China, represented only by P. sumatranus Enderlein. Austerocardiochiles japonicus (Watanabe), new combination, and A. turga (Belokobylskij), new combination, are transferred from Cardiochiles Nees.
