The small, basically Himalayan genus Glenniea Turk, 1945 is formally new to the fauna of China due to the discovery of G. prima sp.n., a species that lives epigeically in Guangxi Province. Epanerchodus orientalis Attems, 1901, a highly polymorphous species very common in Japan and Taiwan, is formally reported from China for the first time as well, based on a cave population in Guangxi Province. A new cave locality is also presented for E. stylotarseus Chen & Zhang, 1990, a species already known from three other caves in the same Guanling County, Guizhou Province.
