ABSTRACT. New records of Paraclytus thibetanus (Pic, 1914), P. albiventris (Gressitt, 1937), P. scolopax (Holzschuh, 1999) and P. primus Holzschuh, 1992 are given in China. The first, previously unknown male and female are described for the former two species, respectively. Based on certain structural features of the P. thibetanus male, additional differences of this species from the probably most similar P. excellens Miroshnikov et Lin, 2012 are revealed. Detailed bibliography for each of the relevant species is presented.
