Judging by the well-developed spines on the middle tibia and femur, and the overall gestalt, this should be Hoplopheromerus.

Awesome! Thank you very much, Chris, for the ID and the explanation! TumbsUp I just did a quick check. At least (probably more than) 2 species of Hoplopheromerus (H.armatipes and H.hirtiventris) have been recorded from Zhejiang. I think If I had taken a lateral shot of its abodmen, maybe it would have been much easier to get to species. Now, they both seem to look right but well, H.armatipes looks slightly more likely. Thank you again! TumbsUp
