Abstract A new species of flanged bombardier beetles is described from Jiangxi and Sichuan, China, Paussus (Scaphipaussus) zhouchaoi sp. n. (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Paussinae, Paussini). All the type specimens were collected from colonies of the host ant Pheidole sp. (Hymenoptera, Formicidae, Myrmicinae). Important morphological characters of the new species are illustrated by color plates.

TLDR
A detailed morphological study of Paussus utilizing novel techniques and character systems finds anatomical apomorphies diagnostic of the major clades of Paussedus strongly supported by molecular data reveal that morphology is informative for placingPaussus species, despite the extreme phenotypic diversity and convergence prevalent in the group.
