Two new species of the genus Myrmica are described from the Himalaya. Myrmica adrijae sp. n. is reported from North-western region in India, while Myrmica pseudorugosa sp. n. is reported from North-eastern Pakistan. Myrmica adrijae sp. n. and Myrmica pseudorugosa sp. n. belong to the smythiesii and rugosa species groups respectively. Both species are considerably distinct from already described species in these groups.
