The type series of 18 out of 19 species of Nirvaninae described by C. F. Baker in nine genera were examined and lectotypes designated. Jassonirvana lineata Baker and Stenometopius mindanaoensis Baker are removed from the Nirvaninae as they belong to Deltocephalinae. Each of the remaining species and Kana maculata Baker (based on specimen collected from the type locality) are redescribed with respect to the male and female genitalia wherever available and are illustrated. Keys to included genera and species are also provided. Pseudonirvana Baker is treated as a junior synonym of Sophonia Walker. New combinations proposed are Sophonia marginata (Baker) (from Ophiuchus), Pactana picea (Baker) (from Kana), Nirvana sanguinolineata (Baker) and Nirvana davaoensis (Baker) (both from Pseudonirvana). The latter species is treated as a junior synonym of Nirvana philippinensis Baker. The genera Nirvanoides Baker, Pythonirvana Baker and Pactana Linnavuori are redescribed.
