Abstract

Sarothrocera lowii White, 1846 is the only species belonging to the genus Sarothrocera (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae).  Both the sexes of S. lowii were collected from Medziphema, Nagaland, northeastern India, during surveys in 2016.  Earlier, Ghate et al. (2012) and Kumawat et al. (2015) reported this species from Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh, respectively, based on female specimens.  This paper describes detailed characters of male S. lowii with comments on the female, along with the genitalia descriptions of both sexes for the first time.  The species is a new report from Nagaland, India, adding to the known distribution.
