Key to Bamboosiella  species from India

This key is based on the study of type material of four species ( B. malabarica  , B. microptera  , B. nayari  and B. varia  ) and material of two species ( B. bicoloripes  and B. nayari  ) from Thailand identified by S. Okajima. Type material B. bicoloripes  and B. graminella  could not be traced in any National or International Museum and these species are included here based on information in the original descriptions.
