Holotype: KIZ‑GXNU202210, 36.0 mm SL, Andong Town, Xincheng County, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China; 24◦18.57′ N, 108◦59.61′ E, 179 m a.s.l
Paratypes: KIZ‑GXNU202207–09, 9 ex., 29.9–54.3 mm SL, collected with holotype
Known only from the type locality: The new species was collected from Andong Township, Xincheng County, Laibin City, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China (24◦18.57′ N, 108◦59.61′ E). Troglonectes canlinensis sp. nov. lives in a karst cave, where water accumulates to form a pool. Most specimens were collected in the rainy season. During the winter, the pool dries up and the cave opening is too narrow for human access. The water temperature was 20 ◦C during the survey period in July 2022 (Li et al. 2023).
As above only.
