Uranotaenia bhutanensis Somboon, Namgay & Harbach was recently described as a new species of the Bimaculata Series of the subgenus Pseudoficalbia Theobald based on larvae collected from a log hole at high altitude in Bhutan. The adult female and pupa are described in this article based on the subsequent discovery of 2 paratype females with associated pupal exuviae.
