Gazalina chrysolopha Kollar, 1844 is a white moth with several black line patterns. It belongs to family Notodontidae. The major habitat consists of oak and alder forests in the Himalaya. The moth is associated with the cause of corneal melting eye disease. The finding of a moth in a trans-Himalayan region set forth the change of current distribution range, host, and habitat preference behaviors.
