ABSTRACT. A new crypting species, Hyponephele antihilaris sp.n., is described from the low-mountainous part of Gissarsky Mts. in Tajikistan (type locality  Tajikistan, Gissarsky Mts. near Obigarm settlement, 1408 m, N 38°43.257', E 69°41.013'). The new species belongs to the high-mountainous H. hilaris (Staudinger, 1886) group but differs from H. hilaris by its low-altitudinal distribution, small wing pattern features, the forewing shape and COI sequence.
