Abstract

The genus Brachygluta Thomson, 1859 and two widely distributed Central Asian species, B. iranica (Saulcy, 1876) and Trissemus melinus (Solsky, 1870), are newly recorded from China (Xinjiang). A diagnosis, illustrations of the habitus and morphological details of both species, and a redescription of T. melinus is provided.
