Distribution. China: Hebei ( Kaszab, 1940; Liu et al., 2015), Heilongjiang (new record), Inner Mongolia ( Kaszab, 1940; Ren & Yu, 1999; Egorov, 2008), Jilin (new record), Liaoning (new record), Shandong (new record), Shanxi ( Reitter, 1889; Kaszab, 1940; Egorov, 1989, 2008); Mongolia ( Kaszab, 1940; Ren & Yu, 1999; Egorov, 2008); Russia ( Kaszab, 1940; Egorov, 2008; Dorzhieva, 2010).

Remarks. Platyscelis ballioni  ( Fig. 47View FIGURES 45–50) was published by Reitter (1889) with a single female specimen from Shanxi, China. Kaszab (1940) examined and redescribed the specimen in his revision of the tribe Platyscelidini  worldwide, and diagnosed it from Blaps rugifrons Germar  with the characters: elytra quite flat and parallel (arched and short oval in B. rugifrons  ); apex of protibiae strongly foliate extended (not strongly in B. rugifrons  ). P. brevis  ( Figs. 48–49View FIGURES 45–50) distributed in Mongolian Plateau, 291 specimens were examined in this study, body short in north and longer in south generally. Therefore, P. ballioni  was a female of P. brevis  in southern Mongolian Plateau.
