This report details the joint Chinese-Bulgarian expedition carried out by members and friends of Bulgarian Caving Society in collaboration with the Yunnan Institute of Geography & China Exploration & Research Society (CERS)- Yunnan branch. The primary aim of the 2013 joint Chinese-Bulgarian expedition was to continue the exploration of caves in Gaoligongshan Mountain and some unexplored adjacent areas in Yunnan Province of China. Six speleologists from Bulgaria and four from China took part in the survey carried between 4 and 14th November 2013. During the expedition 14 caves with total length of 2302.60 m and depth of 379.06 m were studied and mapped. Xian Ren Dong next to MengnuozСen village was the most significant cave explored by the team. Its length was measured to be 1863.70 m. Rich cave-dwelling fauna was collected from 6 of the caves and three species of carabid beetles was proved and described as new to science.

We describe and illustrate Amerizus (Tiruka) gaoligongensis sp. n. (type locality: cave Wu Shi Shan 1-2-3, near village Kongshuhe, Tengchong County, Yunnan, China). The species possesses a set of real troglomorphic characters, such as depigmentation of tegument, prolongation of the appendages, microphthalmy, roundness of both pronotum and elytra, and brachyptery. These special features, together with three corporal indexes and peculiarities in the structure of the aedeagus, enable a readily distinction of the new species. Otherwise, A. gaoligongensis seems related to species from the queinneci species-group. Key words: Coleoptera, Carabidae, Bembidiini, Amerizus, new species, China, Yunnan.
