Abstract:
The paper describes two new species of Macronyssus collocted from Sichuan and Guizhou Provinces, China.
Macronyssus chuanguiensis sp. nov.
The new species closely resembles Macronyssus ventralis (Wen, 1975), but with the following differences: The female of new species with 24 setal pairs on dorsal plate, only with leafy pilus dentilis in the fixed digit of cheia; The male of new species with 25 setal pairs on dorsal plate, only with holoventral plate (no sternogenito plate and ventral plate), with longer setal-like structure in the fixed digit of spermatophoral process.
Holotype, allotype, papratypes1 and 1 peotonymph were collected off Rhinolophus sp. on Sep. 12, 1981, from Ziyun County of Guizhou, by Jiang Zhengyang; another paratype 1was collected off Hipposideres armiger from Nanjiang County of Sichuan, on Sep. 11, 1980, by Wang Chengdi. The types are deposited in the Sanitary and Anti-epidemic Station of Sichuan Province.
Macronyssus dechangensis sp. nov.
The new species is similar to Macronyssus chuanguiensis sp. nov., but with the following differences: The new species with 27 setal pairs on dorsal plate, while that of the latter with 24 setal pairs; shape of sternal plate, genitoventral plate and coax differs from the latter.
Holotype was collected off Rhinolophus affinis from Dechang County of Sichuan, in 1981, by Zhang Fuguo. The type is deposited in the Sanitary and Anti-epidemic Station of Sichuan Province.
