Lobopterocharips arreplegata gen. n. and sp. n. from Nepal is described and illustrated. Its phylogenetic position within the subfamily Charipinae is discussed. This new genus is phylogenetically important because it shares some characters with the basal genus Phaenoglyphis and others with the rest of the Charipinae. A key to all the genera of Charipinae is given. A list and map of locations of all the records of Charipinae from Asia is provided.
