Abstract

A new species of the genus Gerenia Stål, 1878, Gerenia mizoramia Kumar & Chandra sp. nov., from Dampa Tiger Reserve, Mizoram, India is described here. The new species is similar to the Indian species, G. bengalensis Bhowmik & Halder, 1983, but differs from it in the presence of a dark black oval spot in the middle of tegmen, apex of tegmen comparatively broad and hind wing slightly shorter than tegmen.
