We describe a new Lithosiini genus Setteleia gen. nov. for four new species from the Philippines: S. witti sp. nov. (Mindanao Island), S. carota sp. nov. (northern Luzon Island), S. lourensi sp. nov. (eastern Luzon Island) and S. bakunawa sp. nov. (northern Luzon Island). The new genus belongs to the Asura Walker, 1854 / Miltochrista Hübner, [1819] generic complex and is related to the genera Moorasura Volynkin & Huang, 2019, Sarbine Volynkin, 2019, Ammatho Walker, 1855 and Cyme Felder, 1861 and also shares some genital characters with such genera as Integrivalvia Volynkin & Huang, 2019, Fossia Volynkin, Ivanova & Huang, 2019 and Asuridia Hampson, 1900, but is characterized by a number of autapomorphic features in both, male and female genitalia.

Key words: Arctiinae, Lithosiini, New genus, New species, Asia.
