This study describes a new species, Crossotarsus beaveri Lai & Wang, sp. nov.,  designates a new combination, C. brevis (Browne, 1975, from Platypus Herbst, 1793), comb. nov., and notes a new record, C. emorsus Beeson, 1937, from China. Genetic data from four genes indicate that the new species and C. brevis form a clade clustered with other Crossotarsus species. Molecular phylogeny and morphological characters support their taxonomic placement.
