Abstract

Only one species of Medetera Fischer von Waldheim was known to occur previously in Tibet. Here the following three species of Medetera are described as new to science: Medetera exornata sp. nov., Medetera furva sp. nov. and Medetera sinuosa sp. nov. The first two species belong to the apicalis group, and the last one belongs to the diadema-veles group. A key to the species of Medetera from the Himalayas is provided.
