In this study, one species of the bag moth, Mahasena aurea (Butler) (Lepidoptera: Psychidae), was found for the first time in Korea as a new insect pest on leaves of Liriope spicata (Thunb.) Lour. Also, the female larvae and adults of the species were first collected in this country. Larvae, pupae, and adults of both sexes are redescribed with illustrations of all external characteristics including the genitalia of the male.
