Syrista Konow includes five species: S. parreyssii (Spinola 1843) from the Mediterranean Region and Near East; S. similis Mocsáry 1904, from Japan and China; and S. xiaoi Wei 2008, S. rufiabdominalis (Wei and Nie 1996), n. comb., and S. incisa (Wei and Nie 1996), n. comb., from China. The lectotype of Syrista similis and holotypes of S. incisa and S. rufiabdominalis are redescribed, and the male of S. xiaoi is described. A key to the five species is presented. Species are shoot borers in Rosa spp. (Rosaceae).
