The presence of two ant genera, Cerapachys Smith, 1857 and Parasyscia Emery, 1882 is reported for the first time in Nepal. We collected two workers of Parasyscia wighti (Bharti & Akbar, 2013) from Ranibari Community Forest and one worker of Cerapachys sulcinodis Emery, 1889 from Nagarjun forest using pitfall traps. With this discovery, the total number of Doryline ant genera of Nepal has reached to five. Synoptic account of these two genera, worker description of the species and identification keys to Nepalese genera of the subfamily Dorylinae are provided. Images of all known species representing full-face, dorsal and profile views are provided.
