New Chinese Zephroniidae
Five new species of giant pill-millipedes in the family Zephroniidae are described and illustrated from China: Zephronia medogensis Zhao & Liu n. sp., Z. zhouae Zhao & Liu n. sp., Z. hui Liu & Wesener n. sp., Sphaerobelum benqii Liu & Wesener n. sp. and S. tujiaphilum Zhao & Liu n. sp. COI sequences of these five new species are given and deposited in GenBank. Additionally, a study of the genetic distance and a molecular maximum likelihood analysis were conducted based on DNA barcoding data of most SE Asian Sphaerotheriida species.
