Abstract

Four new species of Desmoxytes are described from southern China: D. lingulata sp. n., D. parvula sp. n., and D. nodulosa sp. n., from Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and D. getuhensis sp. n. from Guizhou Province. In addition, new records of D. scutigeroides Golovatch, Geoffroy & Mauriès, 2010 and D. scolopendroides Golovatch, Geoffroy & Mauriès, 2010 are provided, with a modified key to Desmoxytes species currently known to occur in China. Two of the new species, D. nodulosa sp. n. and D. getuhensis sp. n., seem to be troglobites.
