A check list is given of 66 rust species belonging to 25 genera, collected from trees and bamboos in the Qinling Mountains, Shaanxi, China during surveys carried out from 1983 to 1995. Four new records for China were found: Chrysomyxa abietis, Pucciniastrum aceris, Pucciniastrum corni and Peridermium parksianum. Details of new host plants and distribution of the hosts for known rust species are included.
