The genus Andraca Walker, 1865, is divided into two subgenera, one of them new: Chrypathemola Zolt., subgen. nov. (type species Andraca apodecta Swinhoe, 1907). The following new species are described: Andraca draco, sp. nov. (from Java); Andraca lawa, sp. nov. (from Palawan), Andraca paradisea, sp. nov. (from Philippines), Andraca chrysocollis, sp. nov. (from Philippines) and Andraca (Chrypathemola) nobilorum, sp. nov. (from Vietnam). A male lectotype for Andraca bipunctata Walker, 1865 is designated from the collection of ZMHU; this designation led to the new synonymy: Andraca bipunctata Walker, 1865 = Andraca angulata Kishida, 1993, syn. nov. The systematics of the family Bombycidae is briefly discussed.
重點是: (1) 台灣真的沒有bipunctata, 農業文獻上的學名真的就是錯了; (2) 台灣產的茶蠶被置入Chrypathemola這個新亞屬中.
