Abstract

This paper deals with 7 subfamilies, 30 genera and 82 species of Tetrigidae from Shiwanshan, Guangxi in China. Among them three new species of the subfamily Metrodorinae are described, namely Mazarredia convexaoides Deng & Zheng sp. nov., Mazarredia shiwanshanensis Deng & Zheng sp. nov. and Bolivaritettix shiwanshanensis Deng & Zheng sp. nov. Also, new synonyms are presented: Miriatroides quadrivertex Zheng & Jiang, 2002 syn.nov. is synonymized with Spadotettix hainanensis Günther, 1939, thus genus Miriatroides Zheng & Jiang, 2002 with the genus Spadotettix Hancock, 1910. Finally, brief comments on faunistic characters of Tetrigidae from Shiwanshan are given.
