I provide a checklist, distributional map and key to these species, with descriptions of the three new species: Neopanorpa liuxingyuei sp. nov., Neopanorpa wuchaoi sp. nov., and Neopanorpa zhengyucheni sp. nov. from Tibet, China. The biology and biogeography for the 21 species of Neopanorpa from this region are briefly discussed.
