Notes

Abstract:
Two new parapatric species of Desmoxytes are described from caves in a karst area in Guangxi Province, southern China: D. scutigeroides sp.n. and D. scolopendroides sp.n. Both are possibly troglobites, this being especially true of D. scutigeroides sp.n., in which the legs, antennae and paratergal spines are particularly long, the body is loose while the tegument often pallid. Both the species differ well from each other and the remaining, known congeners, all in Southeast Asia and southern China, chiefly by the length of the legs and antennae, as well as in certain details of tergal and male leg ornamentation, and in gonopod structure.
