Abstract


The new genus Longarista Volynkin, gen. nov. is described for Miltochrista longaria Daniel, 1951. The new genus belongs to the Asura / Miltochrista generic complex and is related to Barsine Walker, 1854 and Miltochrista Hübner, [1819]. A new species, Longarista kareli Volynkin, sp. nov. is described from northern Indochina (Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam). The new combination is established: Barsine convexa (Wileman, 1910) comb. nov. Adults, male and female genitalia of both Longarista species and representatives of the related genera are illustrated.
