Abstract

The Asura/Miltochrista generic complex belongs to Lithosiini (Erebidae, Arctiinae). It is one of the most diverse and taxonomically unresolved groups of this tribe. At present, this generic complex includes about 25 valid genera, as well as several generic/specific taxa of unclear taxonomic status (Holloway 2001, Kirti & Singh 2016, Volynkin 2017, Volynkin & Ivanova 2017, Volynkin et al. 2017, Volynkin & Černý 2016).
