Diphascon (Adropion) modestum Binda, Pilato, and Dastych  

Material examined

Seven specimens were collected from Mount Taibai.

Remarks

My specimens fit the description of this species ( Binda et al. 1984; Kathman 1990). Cuticle smooth. ‘‘Drop’’ formation on the buccopharyngeal tube absent. Pharynx with three rodshaped macroplacoids, of which the first two are of about equal length. Microplacoid absent. Claws of Hypsibius   type. This species is a new record for China. Its type locality is in Poland.
