Abstract Araneibatrus gracilipes gen. n. and sp. n. from South China is described and illustrated. The systematic position of the genus is discussed. 
New Cavernicolous Pselaphinae from Sichuan, China (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae)
TLDR
Three new species of cavernicolous Pselaphinae are diagnosed, described, and figured based on newly collected material from four caves in Sichuan, southern China, all belonging to the tribe Batrisini (Batrisitae).
New species of karst-dwelling Pselaphinae from southwestern China (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae)
TLDR
Three cavernicolous species of the ant-loving beetle subfamily Pselaphinae are described based on the material collected in the dark zone of limestone caves in southwestern China and the generic diagnosis of Zopherobatrus is modified accordingly.
In the twilight zone—The head morphology of Bergrothia saulcyi (Pselaphinae, Staphylinidae, Coleoptera), a beetle with adaptations to endogean life but living in leaf litter
TLDR
It is proposed that behavioral studies are necessary to understand the poorly known life habits of B. saulcyi, and it is conceivable that glands linked with food uptake in free‐living pselaphines were genetically re‐programmed in ancestors of inquilines, to enable them to appease the host ants.
