The Oriental species of the genus Dnopherula, prior to Jago (1971) known as Aulacobothrus, are revised from material in European collections. Nine species and subspecies are redescribed and extensively figured from type material. D. taeniatus (Bolívar, 1902), formerly regarded a synonym of D. luteipes (Walker, 1871), is re-estaolished as a good species. D. physopoda (Navás, 1904) becomes a new synonym of D. taeniatus (Bolívar, 1902), and D. collinus (Uvarov, 1929) a new synonym of D. bolivari (Uvarov, 1921); the status of D. infernus (Bolívar, 1902) is reduced to subspecific level under D. luteipes (Walker, 1871). Bidentacris Zheng, 1982, and Parvibothrus Yin, 1984, become new generic synonyms of Dnopherula Karsch, 1896. The systematic status and possible synonymy of species described in recent years from China, Nepal and India under the generic names Dnopherula, Bidentacris or Parvibothrus are discussed according to the descriptions. But no taxonomic changes are made, as the type material was not studied.
