Remarks. The characters of the habitus and the gonopods of this species are shown in Figs 26–27 View FIGURE 26 View FIGURE 27 . Sellanucheza is a small genus containing six species distributed in China (three species in Sichuan, Chongqing and Shaanxi) and northern Vietnam. The generic name has been changed from Szechuanella Hoffman, 1961 to the anagram Sellanucheza because of preoccupation ( Enghoff et al. 2004), and the original name refers to Sichuan Province, China. The type locality of S. jaegeri is in Houzhenzi, Shaanxi, about 400 km from Yintiaoling. Further investigation of the actual distribution range of this species is needed, especially on some areas of south slope of Qinling Mountains.
