Abstract

Helophorus is the only genus belonging to family Helophoridae and found mainly in the Holarctic region. The study area is lacking in documentation of beetle diversity in particular and as per a report by WWF- India Ladakh especially the Kargil district is poorly studied in terms of its biodiversity and potential impacts of climate change (Muzaffar, 2012)[1]. An attempt was made to study the beetles belonging to this family fom the high altitude cold desert region of the Ladakh and a single species belonging to the single genus Helophorus was recorded from the area under investigation and described in detail.
