Mian Sabahatullah, Mian Inayatullah, Qurratul Ain Tahira

Subfamily Microtypinae is recorded for the first time from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. A new species, Plesiotypus chitralensis of the subfamily Microtypinae is described and illustrated. The specimen was collected at light in Chitral. Among the Plesiotypus species the new species is different from all other described species due to the combination of presence of complete occipital carina, median longitudinal carina on propodeum and the orange yellow second metasomal tergite. The new species is the fourth species described in genus Plesiotypus Achterberg. Plesiotypus chitralensis is compared with its closely related species Plesiotypus convexus Achterberg.
