A new genus Anokha is described in the subfamily Scelioninae (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae), from India with two new species A. anoojii Rajmohana and Veenakumari and A. nigra Rajmohana. The new genus is distinguished from other Scelioninae, by the following combination of characters: closely placed large, round, setigerous tubercles separated by narrow sinuous furrows on head and mesosoma; posteriorly emarginate mesoscutellum with postero-lateral corners drawn into prominent spines. Both sexes are described and imaged. Affinities with closely resembling genera are discussed.
