Abstract

This is the first investigation of stick insect from the Yintiaoling National Nature Reserve, Chongqing of China. Totally seven species were collected. Four of them belong to the subfamily Clitumninae of Phasmatidae: Interphasma emeiense Chen & He, 2008, Paraentoria sichuanensis Chen & He, 1997, Parabaculum wushanense (Chen & He, 1997) and Baculonistria alba (Chen & He, 1990). The other three belong to the subfamily Necrosciinae of Lonchodidae, including two new species: Micadina conifera Chen & He, 1997, Hemisosibia yintiaolingensis sp. nov. and Dianphasma chongqingensis sp. nov..
