The genus Chaerilus in China

Happy New Year!

Zhi-Youn Di & Co-workers have recently published a paper discussing the genus Chaerilus (Chaerilidae) in China. The paper also provide a detailed description of the female of Chaerilus tricostatus Pocock, 1899 for the first time.

A list, a key and distributions of the seven Chinese species of the genus Chaerilus Simon, 1877 are provided. The female C. tricostatus Pocock, 1899 collected from Xizang is described and figured for the first time.
