A new species of lichen-moth, Danielithosia hoenei sp. nov., is described from eastern China (Fujian and Hunan), Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam. An apical bifurcation of sacculus and a short and stout apical process of juxta characterize the new species. Two additional species are transferred into Danielithosia, resulting in the following new combinations: Danielithosia mesospila (Fang, 2000) comb. nov. (for Eilema mesospila Fang, 2000), and D. milina (Fang, 1982) comb. nov. (for Eilema milina Fang, 1982).
