Abraxas (Calospilos) breueri, spec. nov. from the Philippines (Mindanao) is described and figured in this paper. Important differential characters in coloration, external and genitalic morphology are shown and discussed. The new species is the first of the genus with reddish ground colour. Differential analysis leads to the conclusion that A. breueri is closely related to several black-and-white Abraxas (Calospilos) species from the Philippine and Indo-Malayan Archipelago (e.g. A. gephyra West, 1929 from Luzon; A. triseriaria Herrich-Schaffer, 1855 from Java; A. intervacuata (Warren, 1896) from Borneo; A. subhyalinata Rober, 1891 from Flores). These, on the other hand, exhibit close affinities to the A. pusilla-group which is distributed throughout the S.E. Asian mainland.
