Proceedings of the 12th International Congress of Speleology, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Aug. 1997. Symposium 9, Volume 3: 315-317 (1 fig.).During the post-Congress excursion to Benxi and Liaoning Province, China, in 1993, a new species of Campodeid Dipluran was found in Wangtian Cave. This new species belongs to the genus Pacificampa Chevrizov 1978, previously only known from caves in the southern part of the Far East of Russia, just northeast of Korea. There are remarkable similarities in morphology between the species of this genus and those of Plutocampa Chevrizov 1978 (another genus with troglobitic species from the same region of Russia), and the species of certain genera of Campodeids (Haplocampa; Eumesocampa) from western North America. Comparisons of these Palearctic and Nearctic genera are made. (author; RB).
