Diphascon (Diphascon) cf. pingue Marcus  

Material examined

Twenty-one specimens were collected from Mount Taibai.


This species was reported as a new record for China from Sechuan Province and Yunnan Province ( Beasley et al. 2006). My specimens fit the description of this species ( Ramazzotti and Maucci 1983; Dastych 1988; McInnes 1995; Pilato and Binda 1997 /98). It has never been reported from the Tsinling Mountains.
