Cyana neopuer N. Singh, Bhattacharyya & Volynkin, in Singh, Bhattacharyya, Volynkin & Chandra, 2019  , Zootaxa 4603 (2): 366, figs 1–8, 23–26, 31–32 (Type locality: “NE India, W Meghalaya, Umran, 33 km N Shillong”).

Type material examined. Holotype ( Fig. 25View FIGURES 19–27): ♂, “NE India, W Meghalaya, Umran , 33 km N Shillong, 26°06’N, 92°23’E, 800 m, 14–23.VII.1997, leg. Sinjaev & Afonin”, slide MWM 34431View Materials Volynkin (Coll. MWM / ZSM).GoogleMaps 

Paratypes: 55 ♂ and 5 ♀ from India, Nepal and North Myanmar (Colls MWM / ZSM and NZCZSI) listed by Singh et al. (2019a)  .

Diagnosis. Forewing length is 18–20 mm in males and 21–21.5 mm in females. Externally, C. neopuer  has no differences from C. puer  and differs by the genitalia structures only. In the male genitalia, the vesica structure is diagnostic: in C. neopuer  only two small medial diverticula have clusters of spinulose scobination and the third medial diverticulum is membranous, whereas in C. puer  all the three small medial diverticula bear clusters of spinulose scobination. In the female genitalia, the signa bursae of C. neopuer  are larger than those of C. puer  .

Distribution. North East India (Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya), Nepal and North Myanmar ( Singh et al. 2019a).
