Distribution. India: Uttarakhand ( Mathur 1975, as Euphyllura caudata  ); Nepal (1 ♀, Kosi, Pakhribas, 27°03’N / 87°18’E, 1700 m, to Mangmaya, 27°07’N / 87°15’E, 300 m, 29.v.2001, farmland, maize and rice fields, with small patches of strongly degraded forest, Syzygium cumini (D. Burckhardt)  #4(3) [ NHMBAbout NHMB, dry mounted]); Sri Lanka (1 ♀, Kandy, 600 m, 1‒18.iv.1991 (J. Kolibáč) [ NHMBAbout NHMB, dry mounted]).

Host plant. Syzygium cumini  ( Myrtaceae  ).

Comments. As suggested by Hodkinson (1986), Euphyllura caudata Mathur, 1975  and E. concolor Mathur, 1975  are members of the genus Ctenarytaina Ferris & Klyver, 1932  , based on the presence of a subapical comb of bristles on the mesotibia in the adults and additional pore fields on the caudal plate in immatures. Here they are formally recombined as Ctenarytaina caudata ( Mathur, 1975)  , comb. nov. from Euphyllura  and Ctenarytaina concolor ( Mathur, 1975)  , comb. nov. from Euphyllura  .
