The Indian species of Omphale Haliday are discussed. Seven species are included, of which four species O. akhtari Jamali & Zeya sp. nov., O. ecola Jamali & Zeya sp. nov., O. kamili Jamali & Zeya sp. nov. and O. litera Jamali & Zeya sp. nov. are described and illustrated. One species O. appannai (Kurian) is transferred to Omphale Haliday from Chrysonotomyia Ashmead. Diagnostic characters are presented for O. stonia Narendran & O. calicuti Narendran. An identification key to Indian species is also provided.
