Macdunnoughia kashmirensis sp. nov. from Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir (India) is described and recognized as a member of the Macdunnoughia species group. Superficially, the species closely resembles Macdunnoughia confusa (Stephens, 1850). A discussion of the discrimination of the two species M. tetragona (Walker, 1858), M. confusa (Stephens, 1850) along with new species are presented.
