Miltochrista is a genus of moths of the family Erebidae, subfamily Arctiinae. The genus was erected by Jacob Hübner in 1819.

Description

Palpi short and porrect (extending forward). Antennae with long cilia in male and bipectinated, and minute cilia in female. Tibia with short spurs. Forewings with vein 5 from just above lower angle of cell, vein 6 from upper angle or stalked with veins 7,8 and 9. Vein 10 from close to the angle of cell or before cell. Vein 11 from one-half to three-fourths length of cell and straight, or curved and running close along vein 12 or anastomosing with 12. Hindwings with vein 5 on a short stalk with vein 4, or from a point with it, or from above angle. Veins 6 and 7 stalked and vein 8 from near end of cell.[2]
