Miltochrista Hübner, [1819] is one of largest genera of lichen-moths (family Erebidae, subfamily Arctiinae, tribe Lithosiini) including more than 160 valid species, widely distributed in Oriental and Palearctic Regions. For a long time, the genus was treated in a wide sense. Holloway (2001) treated Miltochrista as a small group of species close to the type species of the genus Noctua rubicunda [Denis Schiffermüller], 1775 (a junior synonym of Miltochrista miniata (J.R. Forster, 1771)), whereas the majority of other Palaearctic and Oriental Miltochrista-like species was assigned to the genera Lyclene Moore in Horsfield Moore, [1860] and Barsine Walker, 1854...

The genus Barsura Volynkin, Dubatolov Kishida, 2017 belongs to the tribe Lithosiini, subfamily Arctiinae, family Erebidae, and was recently erected for Barsine nubifascia Walker, [1865] and its allies (Volynkin et al. 2017). At present the genus includes ten valid species distributed in Himalaya (Pakistan, Nepal, northern and northeastern India, Bhutan), China and North Vietnam (Volynkin et al. 2017; Volynkin 2017). During studies of extensive Lithosiini materials deposited in Museum Witt / Zoologische Staatssammlung, München (Munich, Germany), I found a short series of one more, yet undescribed species from the Chinese province Sichuan...
