Genus Disepholcia Prout, 1924 

Disepholcia Prout, 1924  , in Prout & Talbot, Bulletin of the Hill Museum, Witley 1: 404. Type-species: Trisuloides caerulea Butler, 1889  , by original designation. Syntypes [ India]: [Punjab], Dharmsala ( BMNH).

The monotypic genus Discepholcia is treated here as it is the closest ally of Trisuloides  . It differs from Trisuloides  in the shape of the forewing, the black and blue shine/color of the hindwing, well developed tongue-like editum (basal process of costa) in male genitalia, and by structure of female genitalia. Before a complete revision of the other genera of Pantheinae  has been conducted, we retain Disepholcia  as a distinct genus, although it has been placed as a synonym of Trisuloides  by other authors.
