Distribution. Bhutan (1 ♀, Thimphu, 14.v.1972 (Naturhistorisches Museum Basel—Bhutan-Expedition); 1 ♂, 1 ♀, same but 27.iv.1972; 2 ♂, 2 ♀, same but 20 km south of Thimphu, 2300 m, 18.v.1972 [ NHMBAbout NHMB, dry mounted]); India: Himachal Pradesh ( Mathur 1973b, as Euphyllura eastopi  ), Meghalaya ( Lahiri & Biswas 1979, as Euphyllura eastopi  ); Nepal ( Miyatake 1981, as Syringilla nepalensis  ).

Host plant unknown, according to ( Mathur 1973b) unidentified plant. 

Comments. Hodkinson (1986) suggested that Euphyllura eastopi Mathur, 1973b  may be synonymous with Syringilla nepalensis Miyatake, 1981  . Based on the examination of the female holotype and four female paratypes of E. eastopi  ( BMNH) and specimens from Bhutan and Nepal ( BMNH, NHMBAbout NHMB) fitting the description of S. nepalensis  , we confirm Hodkinson’s (1986) tentative synonymy and transfer the former to Syringilla  as Syringilla eastopi (Mathur, 1973)  , comb. nov. = Syringilla nepalensis Miyatake, 1981  syn. nov. The differences in the paramere shape in the original descriptions of the two nominal species are due to a distortion of this structure in Mathur’s (1973b) description.
