Abstract: The type species of the subgenus Bagrada sensu-sticto and sensu Horváth 1936,
hilaris (Burmeister, 1835) is redescribed with special reference to male and
female genitalia. Three new speices from various localities of Pakistan are
described and are compared with their cosest ally the type species and the only
species known to-date within the subgenus. In the light of the above characters
and the note on their zoogeography, the phylogenetic positions of the subgenus
within the genus Bagrada Stal, 1862 and of the included species within the
sub-genus are also briefly discussed. A key to the included. A key to the
included species alongwith a short description of the sub-genus is also given.
