A new species of the genus Anomala Samouelle, 1819, Anomala consanguinea sp. nov. is described from Hainan and Guangdong Provinces, southern China. It is closely related to Oriental Anomala Esmeralda Prokofiev, 2015, A. russiventris Fairmaire, 1893, and A. inepta Ohaus, 1916. Diagnostic characters of these species are provided and compared. In addition, their relationships are briefly discussed. Anomala ineptais recorded from Sabah, Malaysia for the first time. Although both of the species agreed well with each other in most morphological characters of the worker, we tentatively retain the separation of these species based on differences in the head sculpture, eye and ocelli sizes. The worker, queen, and male of C. sauteri, and the worker of C. costatus are here redescribed with the first provision of COI DNA barcode data. In addition, C. merimbunensis Yamada & Eguchi sp. nov. is described from Brunei based on workers and males from a single colony. A key to valid Chrysapace species is also provided.
