Survey conducted on scarabaeids in Maharashtra during 2012–13 led to collection of beetles belonging to the genus Rhinyptia. These were studied along with previously preserved specimens for their taxonomic characters. This led to identification of Rhinyptia indica and R. nigrifrons along with an indetermined species. The manuscript include illustrations of salient morphological characters including male genitalia.
