Abstract

This paper treats Chinese species of the rove beetle genus Aleochara Gravenhorst, 1802, subgenus Aleochara s. str. (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Aleocharinae). Four new species are described from China: Aleochara (s. str.) collaris Luo and Zhou, sp. nov. from Sichuan; A. (s. str.) gladiata Luo and Zhou, sp. nov. from Fujian and Guangdong; A. (s. str.) serrulata Luo and Zhou, sp. nov. from Sichuan; and A. (s. str.) similinsularis Luo and Zhou, sp. nov. from Beijing, Heilongjiang, Hubei, Sichuan, and Gansu. Male genitalia and other critical characters are illustrated. A key to adults of Chinese species is provided. All the type specimens of the new species are deposited in the Institute of Zoology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing (IZCAS).
