Abstract  Nine new species of the genus Stedocys Ono, 1995 are described: Stedocys gaolingensis Wu & Li sp. n. (♀, Guangxi), S. huangniuensis Wu & Li sp. n. (♀, Guangxi), S. ludiyanensis Wu & Li sp. n. (♀, Guangxi), S. matuoensis Wu & Li sp. n. (♀, Guangxi), S. pulianensis Wu & Li sp. n. (, Guangxi), S. shilinensis Wu & Li sp. n. (♀, Hainan), S. xianrenensis Wu & Li sp. n. (♀, Guangxi), S. xiangzhouensis Wu & Li sp. n. (♀, Guangxi) from China, and S. zhaoi Wu & Li sp. nov. (♀, Kanchanaburi) from Thailand. Diagnoses of nine new species are provided. DNA barcodes for six new species are documented for future use and as proof of molecular differences between these species.
