Abstract: Two specimens of Celaenorrhinus nigricans nigricans (de Nicéville, 1885) were recorded from Nepal in July 2019 in the mid-hill regions of Syangja and Kaski district. One specimen was recorded from a hilltop in Syangja district along a rural trail while the other specimen was recorded along a forest trail in Sarangkot, Pokhara. The addition of this new record sums up the total number of butterfly species in Nepal to 661 and the total number of species in the genus Celaenorrhinus to 9.
