Distribution. Japan (Ryukyus) ( MATSUMURA 1905), China (Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan, Hainan) ( FABRICIUS 1787, 1794; BURMEISTER 1835; UHLER 1861; STÅL 1863, 1870; WALKER 1873; DISTANT 1903a; LIU 1981; Hu & Gui in ZHANG 1995; HUA 2000; KERZHNER 2001; RÉDEI et al. 2009), Pakistan (Islamabad Capital Territory, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab) ( AHMAD & ABBAS 1987), India (Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Meghalaya, Orissa, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry: Karaikal Territory, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal) ( DISTANT 1879a, 1903a; MAXWELL- LEFROY 1909; BLÖTE 1931; SCHMIDT 1931; MANNA et al. 1985; AHMAD & ABBAS 1987; GHOSH et al. 1989; ZAMAL & CHOPRA 1990; PERVEEN & AHMAD 1991, as Neophysopelta neoschlanbuschii ; CHAKRABARTY et al. 1994; SEN et al. 1998; SINGH & BANYAL 2013; this paper), Bhutan (new record), Nepal ( STEHLÍK 2004; this paper), Bangladesh ( AHMAD & ABBAS 1987), Myanmar ( KIRKALDY & EDWARDS 1902, DISTANT 1903a), Vietnam (new record), Laos ( BLÖTE 1931, STEHLÍK 2005a; this paper), Cambodia ( VOIGT 2006; this paper), Thailand ( STEHLÍK & JINDRA 2003; this paper), Malaysia (Malayan Peninsula: Pahang, Penang) ( WALKER 1873; this paper).

The records from Taiwan ( KERZHNER 2001) were not confirmed recently ( RÉDEI et al. 2009).

Comment. PERVEEN & AHMAD (1991) distinguished Neophysopelta neoschlanbuschii from Ph. slanbuschii based on the following characters: ‘Size of black discal spot on corium larger, pronotal width distinctly less than 2× its length; in male ventroposterior margin of pygophore slightly sinuate, lateral lobes of paramere comparatively broader, in female spermathecal duct with more number of coils’, whereas in Ph. slanbuschii : ‘Size of black discal spot on corium smaller, pronotal width slightly less than 2× its length; in male ventroposterior margin of pygophore truncate, lateral lobe of paramere narrower, in female spermathecal duct with less number of coils’. I had possibility to examine several specimens of Ph. slanbuschii evidently belonging to the same series (NMPC, see Material examined) as the holotype and two male paratypes of N. neoschlanbuschii . The specimens represent Ph. slanbuschii without doubt. It is obvious that diagnostic characters listed by PERVEEN & AHMAD (1991) for Neophysopelta neoschlanbuschii fit to the considerable intraspecific variability of Ph. slanbuschii , particularly the size of the central spot on the corium. Therefore, Neophysopelta neoschlanbuschii Perveen & Ahmad, 1991 is here considered a junior synonym of Ph. slanbuschii .
