Abstract

   Based on adult structural features, Chinese species of the genus Tetragonoderus Dejean are taxonomically treated. Four species are recognized in total. Of these, T. microthorax sp. n. (type locality: Jinghong, Yunnan Province, China) is described and illustrated. Two species, T. rhombophorus Schmidt-Göbel and T. fimbriatus (Bates), are newly recorded from China. T. quadrisignatus (Quens) which was originally known in Hongkong is reported from Guangdong and Hainan Provinces for the first time. A Key to Chinese species of the genus is also provided.
