Here, we review the species of the Old World leafhopper genus Hishimonoides lshihara. Twelve species, including two new species, are recognized in the genus: H. arbudae Viraktamath et al. (India), H. aurifascialis Kuoh (China), H. bougainvilleae Viraktamath et al. (India, China), H. chinensis Anufriev (China), H. curvatus sp. nov. (China: Guangxi), H. dentimarginus Li and Zhang (China), H. miaolingensis Li and Zhang (China), H. orientalis Mahmood (Bangladesh, India), H. recurvatis Li (China), H. sellatiformis lshihara (China, Japan), H. spinosus Viraktamath et al. (India) and H. similis sp. nov. (China: Zhejiang, Gansu, Hunan). The type species and all known species from China are redescribed. One new synonym is revealed, Hishimonoides laterosporeus Li and Zhang, 2005, a junior synonym of Hishimonoides chinensis Anufriev, 1970. A key to the species in this genus is given, and their genital structures are illustrated.
