The present work deals with the Nemouroidea fauna of China. It consists of two sections, a general section and a taxonomic section. In the general section, a historic review of the classification, taxonomic systems, morphology, phylogeny, biogeography and biology of Nemourodea are introduced. In the taxonomic section, 14 genera and 206 species of Nemouroidea from China are described or redescribed. Among them 2 species are newly recorded from China, and 5 new synonymies and 3 new combinations are proposed as follows: Amphinemura curvispina; Indonemoura trichotoma Li & Yang, 2008; Indonemoura scalprata, comb. nov.; Sphaeronemoura grandicauda, comb. nov.; Nemouroidea masuensis comb. nov.; Nemoura wangi Li & Yang 2008; Nemoura atristrigata Li & Yang, 2007. Some species by Wu (1926-1973) are reillustrated and redescribed based on their type material wherever recognizable, and several neotypes assigned by Wu but never published previously are also presented herein. The keys to the families, subfamilies, and the Chinese genera and species and species of Nemouroidea are presented.
