Contributions to the knowledge of the ‘Staphylinus-complex’ (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Staphylinini) of China. Part 19. The genus Ocypus Leach, 1819, subgenus Pseudocypus Mulsant & Rey, 1876. Section 3.
The paper deals with the three species of the lewisius-lineage of the subgenus Pseudocypus Mulsant & Rey, 1876 of the genus Ocypus Leach, 1819, known to occur at present on the territory of the People’s Republic of China. Ocypus lewisius Sharp, 1874 and O. densissimus (Bernhauer, 1933) are redescribed, and Ocypus jelineki sp. nov. is described as new from specimens from Henan, Hubei and Shaanxi. Each species is described, illustrated and all available distributional and bionomic data are given. A key to the Chinese species of the lewisius-lineage of the subgenus Pseudocypus is given.
