The knowledge of the Japanese representatives of the microcaddisfly genus Stactobia is considerably improved by: first description of the adult (male) of the only species previously recorded, S. japonica, for which a neotype is designated; discovery of S. makartschenkoi, previously known from Kunashir; description of 4 new species from Honshu, one of them isolated and remarkable. Several morphological, distributional, and ecological (habitat) aspects are considered.
