Rupisalda austrosinica sp. nov. is described from Guangdong and Yunnan provinces of China. The new species is closely related to Rupisalda thailandana (Cobben, 1985). The remaining Oriental species previously included in the ‘Saldula fl etcheri’ group sensu COBBEN (1986) are transferred here to Rupisalda: R. championi (Drake, 1954) comb. nov., R. edita (Drake & Hoberlandt, 1951) comb. nov., R. fl etcheri (Distant, 1909) comb. nov., and R. pusana (Distant, 1909) comb. nov. The male genitalia and 5th instar nymph of Calacanthia grandis Cobben, 1985 are described and illustrated for the fi rst time. The following species are recorded for the fi rst time for some regions of China: Chiloxanthus kozlovi (Kiritshenko, 1912) from Gansu Province, Micracanthia ornatula (Reuter, 1881) from Jiangsu Province, Saldula fucicola (J. Sahlberg, 1878) from Qinghai and Sichuan Provinces, Saldula recticollis (Horváth, 1899) from Guangxi Autonomous Region and Guangdong Province, and Saldula saltatoria (Linnaeus, 1758) from Qinghai Province.
