The genus Patania Moore has been revalidated and recharacterized after removing it from the synonymy of genus Syllepta Hübner. Nine already known species i.e., concatenalis Walker, caletoralis Walker, costalis Moore, verecunda Warren, palliventralis Snellen, imbecilis Moore, aurantiacalis Fischer V. Roslerstamm, mysisalis Walker, sabinusalis Walker have been transferred, described and illustrated under this genus. The external male and female genitalic structures of these species have been described and illustrated for the first time. A key to the known Indian species of genus Patania Moore has been formulated. A new species P. menoni is reported and described in detail.
