This record of Epiplema adamantina Inoue, 1998 from Mussoorie is the first confirmed record of this species from the Western Himalaya outside Nepal, which is ~800kmwest from vill. Bagmati, Mt. Phoolchauki in Eastern Nepal, the nearest known site record of this species. The species prefers ‘Monsoon season’ as its flight period in ‘Moist temperate oak forest zone’ of Western and Central Himalayas. The paper discusses distinguishing features of E. adamantina with its congeners E. morataria and E. arcuata found in the same region.
