Number: 356, Pages: 17 - 20

Thinodromus (Thinodromus) candidus Gildenkov, sp. n. is described from Yunnan province of China. New species differs from all species of the Thinodromus lunatus species group in the structure of the aedeagus and most similar to T. socius (Bernhauer, 1904) in size, colouration and punctation of the pronotum, but can be clearly distinguished from latter species by more developed temples, shorter antennae, and significantly more distinct and large punctation on the head and pronotum.
