The larva, pupa, and adult of Prionispa houjayi sp. nov., a new species in the Oncocephalini are described and illustrated in detail. Some autapomorphies of the immature stages of this new species are proposed by comparing it to Chaeridiona picea Baly, C. thailandica Kimoto, and Oncocephala quadrilobata (Guerin), including the quadrate abdominal apex and prominent labial palpi in the larva, and the lateral scoli of the pronotum in the pupa. Prionispa houjayi sp. nov. larvae mine the leaves of Disporum Salisbury (Liliaceae).
