First cave-dwelling Campodeidae from China, as an example of hypo-gean evolution in the family (Diplura). - A new species, Plusiocampa (Didymocampa) lipsae, from a cave in Southern China (Hubei) is compared with the most closely related endogean species, P. (D.) sinensis, from Hong Kong. The large size, long legs and antennae, as well as an increased number of sensory receptors, are shared by most of the troglobite species and held to be cave adapted features. Frequently, the endogean species and the derived cave-dwelling ones are geographically not too much separated.
