Abstract: – The genus Neophlaeoba has been first established by Usmani & Shafee in 1983 as a world record from India and is represented by only two species- Neophlaeoba walayarensis & N. maculata. During the course of field survey of central Bihar, especially Patna district, a new species viz. N.patnaensis sp.n. has been found which sharply differs from established two species in its important morphological and genitalic characters. The species is being described with six illustrations and a revised key to accommodate the new species.
