Formosana renzhigangi n. sp. and Serriphaedusa (Gibbophaedusa) gerberi n. sp. are described from Yunnan Province of southern China. Additionally, new occurrence records of Papilliphaedusa kunmingensis (Chen et Zhang, 1999) are provided. The composition and diversity of Yunnan’s Clausiliidae fauna, its relation to those of the adjacent zoogeographic regions, and the taxonomic status of the native genera Formosana Boettger, 1877 and Papilliphaedusa Nordsieck, 2003 are discussed.
