ABSTRACT. A new species, Protapatophysis hindukushensis Miroshnikov, sp.n., is described from Pakistan. It differs from all congeners by the somewhat peculiar shape of the lateral tubercles of the pronotum, the structure of the genitalia, as well as by the poorly developed discal tubercles of the pronotum and the shorter antennae, especially in comparison with P. kashmiriana (Semenov, 1901), P. vartianae (Heyrovský, 1971) and P. kabakovi Danilevsky, 2011.

KEY WORDS: Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Protapatophysis, new species, Pakistan, Hindukush.
