AbstractEuscopus chinensis n. sp.
In the collection of the Leyden Museum I found a specimen of Euscopus, of which the identity was hitherto not clear to me; but as it was a single female I was not able to made a description of it. Between the specimen of the British Museum, my colleague Mr CHINA was so kind to send to me, I found two males and one female, of which I am sure they are belonging to the same species.
The species is rather closely allied to E. rufipes Stål and (still more) to E. vittiventris Walk, having the black colour markings as in the second species, but the ground colour of the hemielytra and the basal fascia to the pronotum are red, not yellow. The red longitudinal fascia to the venter is in some of the specimen indicated, but not always distinct. The structure of the ultimate ventral segment is somewhat like that of E. vittiventris Walk., but the incisure of the posterior border is more distinctly indicated, and shows a small tooth in the middle.
Length of the ♂: 81/4—82/3 mm; of the ♀: 91/2—10 mm. Tonkin, Juny 1917, R. V. de Salvasa, Holotype ♂, in the British Museum (Natural History); Canton, China, Staudinger, Allotype ♀, in 's-Rijks Museum van Natuurlijke Historie; N. Chi-tien, Yunnan, S. W.
