ABSTRACT
Three new species of Salganea Stål, 1877 are described and illustrated: S. quinquedentata sp. n., S. anisodonta sp. n. and S. flexibilis sp. n. S. taiwanensis Roth, 1979, S. guangxiensis (Feng & Woo, 1990), S. incerta (Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1893) and S. raggei Roth, 1979 are redescribed. Panesthia concinna Feng & Woo, 1990 is synonymized with S. taiwanensis Roth, 1979 and Panesthia guangxiensis Feng & Woo, 1990 is transferred to the genus Salganea for the first time. As well, a key to species from China is presented.

Mentions: The members of Salganea are known to be burrowers in rotten logs (Figs 78–79), with a hard, rigid, pitted exoskeletion and a thick, scoop-shaped pronotum (Bell et al. 2007). Some macropterous ones shed their wings and only keep the basal region of tegmina and wings intact (Roth 1979; Maekawa et al. 1999b; Bell et al. 2007), i.e., Salganea quinquedentata sp. n., Salganea flexibilis sp. n. and Salganea anisodonta sp. n. as described in this paper, which are all collected by chopping logs and not by light trapping in tropical forests (Fig. 77). Most of them have shed their tegmina and wings and only one specimen of Salganea quinquedentata sp. n. kept these intact; the reason of shedding is maybe the combination of scraping them against gallery walls and the chewing action of conspecifics (Maekawa et al. 2008). The nymphs of Salganea quinquedentata sp. n. are not active and slowly crawl on the scraps of wood; but if frightened by sound and light, they will flee and hide below the scraps (Wang X.D., pers. obser.).
