Abstract: A new species of the salamandrid genus Pachytriton is described based on two individuals purchased from pet shops in Japan. The original locality of these specimens is known only as "China", and further details are not known. Morphologically, this species differs from all other congeners in the combination of coloration, body size, snout length, head width, tail length and width, and length of upper jaw tooth series and vomerine tooth series. Genetically, this species is separated from all other congeners by substantial genetic distances in mitochondrial DNA sequences.
