Australobius polyspinipes sp. n. (Lithobiomorpha: Lithobiidae) was recently discovered from Tianheshan Mountain, Hebei Province, China, and it is described here. Morphologically the new species is similar to A. nodulus Ma, Song &Zhu, 2008 and A. magnus (Trozina, 1894), both recorded from China. The new species can be easily distinguished from those by having 7+7–8+8 coxosternal teeth, 10–12 ocelli on each side of the cephalic plate, 5+5 spurs on the first article of the female gonopods and differences in plectrotaxy of legs. The main morphological characters and a key to the known Chinese species of genus Australobius based on adult specimens is presented.
