Abstract

The Himalayan species of the genus Selasia are reviewed. Selasia atriventris Pic, 1914 from Darjeeling is redescribed and two new species are described: Selasia boruckae sp. nov. from Nepal and Selasia merkli sp. nov. from Pakistan. Selasia maindroni Bourgeois, 1903 from India is transferred from Drilini to Lampyridae: Ototretinae incertae sedis. Diagnostic characters of all Himalayan Selasia species are illustrated and the identification key to males is provided.
