ABSTRACT. Revision of the holotype of Nepalobisium franzi Beier, 1974, from Nepal, showed this species to be a new junior subjective synonym of Microbisium brevifemoratum (Ellingsen, 1903), while the genus Nepalobisium Beier, 1974 is a new junior subjective synonym of Microbisium Chamberlin, 1930, both syn.n. Parthenogenesis seems to be characteristic of several Microbisium species, both Palaearctic and Nearctic.
