Abstract: Five new species of Micronecta Kirkaldy, 1897b (Micronectidae), from Xishuangbanna, the extreme southwest of Yunnan Province, China are described: M. erythra, M. janssoni, M. lobata, M. melanochroa and M. ornitheia. Further, Anisops pseudostali, new species (Notonectidae) is described from the vicinity of Kunming. Micronecta khasiensis Hutchinson, 1940, and M. waltoniana Hutchinson, 1940, are removed from subgenus Mesonecta Poisson, 1938, and together with M. matsumurai Miyamoto, 1965, M. polhemusi Nieser, 2000, and M. melanochroa, new species are placed in the newly described subgenus Unguinecta (type species M. polhemusi). In addition, eight species: Micronecta drepani Nieser, 2000, M. guttatostriata Lundblad, 1933, M. jaczewskii Wróblewski, 1962, M. lemnae Nieser, 2000 (Micronectidae), Cercotmetus asiaticus Amyot & Serville, 1843 (Nepidae), Anisops breddini Kirkaldy, 1901, A. tahitiensis Lundblad, 1934, and Enithares stridulata Brooks, 1948 (Notonectidae) are recorded for the first time from China. Finally, some records of species already known from China are given. © National University of Singapore.
