The new species Roeslerstammia tianpingshana sp. n. is described from Hunan, China as the first record of the genus in the country. Examination of two enigmatic Indian species, R. metaplastica Meyrick, 1921 and R. hemiadelpha Meyrick, 1922, revealed that the latter is a synonym of the former. The male and female genitalia of R. metaplastica are described and illustrated for the first time. A checklist for the genus is given.
