A new species of Dicranocentrus (Collembola, Entomobryidae) from China with comments on the systematic position of the genus.

Xu GL, Zhang F - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: V, the 1+1 central macrochaetae on Abd.The systematic position of Dicranocentrus is also discussed.Present evidence, particularly S-chaetotaxy, indicates that the genus is closer to Heteromurus than to the unscaled species of Orchesella and Orchesellides.

ABSTRACT
Dicranocentrus liuae sp. n. is described from the northern subtropical region of China. The new species is most similar to D. wangi Ma & Chen, 2007, but differs from it in the relatively shorter Ant. V, the 1+1 central macrochaetae on Abd. III, the number of chaetae on tenaculum, and the absence of dental spines. The systematic position of Dicranocentrus is also discussed. Present evidence, particularly S-chaetotaxy, indicates that the genus is closer to Heteromurus than to the unscaled species of Orchesella and Orchesellides.

Figure 1: Geographical distribution of Dicranocentrus species from China.

Mentions: So far, three Dicranocentrus species have been reported from China: Dicranocentrus indicus Bonet, 1930 from Taiwan, Dicranocentrus chenae Ma, Chen & Soto-Adames, 2006 from Guangxi, and Dicranocentrus wangi Ma & Chen, 2007 from Gangdong (Fig. 1). Here, we describe a new species from the northern subtropical region of China, compare it with other orchesellids, and discuss the systematic position of the genus.
