In June of 2005 and in May of 2006, the writer has collected some paper bags of mosses and dry barks from Huangshan (alt. 1200-1500 in) of Anhui Province and Qufu City (Konglin) of Shandong Province. During 2006, some paper bags of mosses and powdery remnant of wood were collected by Ms. WEI Yin-Xin of Institute of Hydrobiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Dr. WANG Quan-Xi of Shanghai Normal University from Sanya City of Hainan Province, Zalantun City and Genhe City of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and Wudalianchi City and Yichun City of Heilongjiang Province. Some paper bags of mosses, lichens and punks were collected by a graduate student Mr. Chen Feng from Milin County (29 degrees 13 ' N; 94 degrees 13 ' E; alt. 2 997 m) and Damxung County (30 degrees 27 ' N; 91 degrees 10 ' E; alt. 4060 m) of Tibet Autonomous Region. Our knowledge of Tardigrada from these areas was rather meager. Using precipitation method, the writer have gotten more tardigrade specimens from these mosses, powdery remnant of wood, lichens and punks, including one new species and four newly recorded species for China. Simple descriptions of these species are given below.
