Anabelcia nepalensis (Harutai, 1993) 

Based on Behounek & Kononenko (2012a), Anabelcia kala (Figs 2–5) and Anabelcia nepalensis (Figs 6–8).
Diagnosis: Externally A. nepalensis easily can be distinguished from A. kala by presence of dark brown or blackish suffusion in the mid-section of medial field below Cu trunk (not expressed in A. kala), less developed dentate lines in the medial field and uninterrupted brown submedial field (in A. kala it is interrupted in the mid-section, forming isolated subapical and tornal brown patches).
