Abstract

Fourteen species of the genus Nosphistica Meyrick, 1911 from China are reviewed, including seven new species: N. abunda sp. nov., N. apiculata sp. nov., N. subrectangula sp. nov., N. elliptica sp. nov., N. fusoidea sp. nov., N. grandiunca sp. nov., and N. albimaculata sp. nov. Nosphistica acriella Park, 2002 is newly recorded from China, and the female of N. metalychna (Meyrick, 1935) is described for the first time. Images of adults and genitalia are provided, along with a key to all the known species in China and a distribution map showing the localities of these species.
