    Euthycera axei sp. nov. is described based on one male and one female. The new species differs from the congeners in the following characters: the male sternite 6 bearing two projections, the absence of a spot on the face; the trapezoid-shaped male sternite 5 with two anterior medial lobes; the hypandrium with a clear subapical process and its axe-like apical end; and the distiphallus with a hook-like tip. The new species is described from the high-altitude region of Gulmarg in Kashmir. High-resolution pictures of male and female habitus are provided, together with details of the male terminalia to facilitate identification of the new species.
