In several publications in India and Bangladesh, photographic images of a Dysphaea Selys, 1853, species with striking caerulean coloration on the male abdomen have been identified as Dysphaea walli Fraser, 1927, a species described from the Shan State in Burma. We present evidence suggesting that these individuals represent an undescribed new species, rather than D. walli, and document the published records of this new species from India and Bangladesh.
