Abstract

A new bristletail species, Pedetontinus kabaki sp. n., is described from Sichuan Province, China. It possess faceted eyes clearly longer than wide, with the contact line shorter than 0.5, paired ocelli relatively closer to each other, and fore femur swollen. A key to 18 described species of the world fauna is given. The plesiomorphic and apomorphic states of 13 characters of Pedetontinus are considered; the phylogenetic relationships of species are discussed.
