A cladistic analysis of the twenty-one South African species of restioid leafhoppers (Cicadellidae : Ulopinae: Cephalelini) is presented, based on fifty characters of the adult morphology. The results are largely congruent with Davies' (1986) subjective hypothesis. Monophyly of the genera Cephalelus Evans and Duospina Davies is supported. Two major clades are evident within the genus Cephalelus.
