A consolidated 49 species of Pyraloidea Latreille,1809 under 42 genera of 7 subfamilies have been reported from Chhattisgarh in the present communication by compiling past information and present sampling. The inventory reflects 20 and 18 species new to Central India and Chhattisgarh, respectively with 10 data deficient species having unclear distribution pattern in India. The present record of Palpita annulifer Inoue, 1996 is its first time locality report in India, since no previous literature mentioned about any particular Indian state, region or locality as its distribution. Moreover, the present study shows significant southward range extension of Locastra muscosalis Walker,1865 (Pyralidae) and Pycnarmon alboflavalis (Moore,1888) (Crambidae) to the Deccan Peninsular region from the high altitude areas of Himalayan and North East Biogeographic zones of India.
