Based on recent material from central Nepal (Chitwan National Park, Terai) the species "Cicindela" parvimaculata Fowler, 1912, known so far from a single .female. of uncertain origin, is re-described, confirmed as a full valid species, and ascribed to genus Lophyra, subgenus Spilodia (nova comb.). The species is especially characterized, among the relatives of L. (S.) striolata (Illiger, 1800), by the occurrence of a penicillum on fourth joint of male antennae, and by the lack of coupling sulci in the female.
