ABSTRACT
Two subgenera of Pseudiberus Ancey, Pseudiberus s. str. Ancey and Platypetasus Pilsbry, are synonymised, based on the fact that the snails cannot be distinguished based on shell or genital characters, and their distribution ranges largely overlap. Examining the type specimens resulted in synonymisation of Platypetasus cixianensis Chen et Zhang, 2000 and Pseudiberus chentingensis (Yen, 1935). Possible reasons for the conchological differences between the Cixian County population and the Zhengding population ofthe species are discussed.
