Three new species of Psychodidae from the Western Ghats of India are described and illustrated. Specimens are from a single Malaise trap sample taken in 2007. Horaiella pectinata sp. nov. represents the fi rst record of Horaiellinae from southern India; Gondwanoscurus jezeki sp. nov. and Saximormia gladiator sp. nov. represent new genus records for India and range extensions for both genera. Telmatoscopus arcuatus Vaillant, 1965 is transferred to Gondwanoscurus Ježek, 2002. A research prospectus for Indian Psychodidae is given.
