ABSTRACT. A new species — Neaetha tomkovichi sp.n. (♂♀) from India (Andhra Pradesh) — is diagnosed and described. Three new synonyms are proposed: Stichius albomaculatus Thorell, 1890 and Bianor leucostictus Thorell, 1890 with Bianor angulosus (Karsch, 1879), and Bianor incitatus Thorell, 1890 with Bianor balius Thorell, 1890. The latter species is removed from the genus Stertinius Simon, 1890, and its original combination is re-instated: Bianor balius comb.rev. The generic name Stichius Thorell, 1890 is synonymised with Bianor Peckham et Peckham, 1886. The lectotype (♀) is designated for Modunda ghigii Caporiacco, 1949, and a new combination is proposed: Ureta ghigii (Caporiacco, 1949), comb.n. (ex Modunda). New faunistic records for seven Harmochirina species of the genera Bianor Peckham et Peckham, 1886, Harmochirus Simon, 1885 and Modunda Simon, 1901 are also provided.
