Abstract: Twenty three species and one subspecies of the genus Laemoglyptus Fairmaire, 1886, occurring in the Himalayas are reviewed. Three species groups with several subgroups are defined. New species and subspecies are described and illustrated: Laemoglyptus ater godawariensis subsp. nov. (Nepal), L. bhutanensis sp. nov. (Bhutan), L. bilyi sp. nov. (Nepal), L. cechovskyi sp. nov. (Nepal), L. chimakothiensis sp. nov. (Bhutan), L. himalayanus himalayanus sp. nov. (Nepal, India: Uttarakhand), L. himalayanus sikkimensis subsp. nov. (India: Sikkim, Dārjiling Distr.), L. hispidus sp. nov. (Nepal), L. vicinoides sp. nov. (Bhutan) and L. walteri sp. nov. (Bhutan). New synonymies are proposed: L. bomfordii (Fairmaire, 1897) = Silis pectinicornis Champion, 1924, syn. nov., and L. vicinus Pic, 1921 = L. martensi Kazantsev, 2009, syn. nov. New distribution data for most of the known species is provided.
