Hainokisaruzo wuyishanensis Huang, Yoshitake & Zhang, sp. n., and H. fulvus Huang, Yoshitake & Zhang, sp. n., are described from the Wuyishan Mountains of Fujian Province, southeastern China. Hainokisaruzo wuyishanensis is characterized by a slender rostrum, narrow brownish scales covering the elytra, three white bands of narrow scales, large apicalmucrones on the mid and hind tibiae in the male, and a large, deep, semicircular concavity on the male ventrite V. In addition, the female pygidium lacks a carina, the spiculum gastrale is robust and bent leftward in dorsal view and the aedeagal body is roundly broadened before the apex and then constricts rapidly and projects acutely apicad. Hainokisaruzofulvus is characterized by a stouter rostrum, narrow black scales covering the elytra, three white bands of elliptical scales, large apical mucrones on the middle and hind tibiae in the male, shallowly concave pygidia in both sexes, a large, deep, transverse, kidney-shaped concavity on the male ventrite V, a slender spiculum gastrale that is bent rightwardin dorsal view and an aedeagal body that is gradually constricted and bluntly projected toward the apex.
