A lernaeid copepod, Lamproglena chinensis Yü, 1937, is redescribed based on the newly collected specimens from the snakehead Channa argus (Cantor) (Actinopterygii: Perciformes: Channidae) caught in Lake Imuta, Satsumasendai, Kagoshima Prefecture, Kyushu, southern Japan and the type specimens of L. ophiocephali Yamaguti, 1939, a junior synonym of L. chinensis, from the Kizu River, Kyoto Prefecture. The adult male was found from Japan for the first time. The collection of the species in this study represents the first record from Kyushu. The previous records of L. chinensis and its related species reported from Asian countries are also reviewed.
