Four new species are described: Neohemigaster angustifrons sp.n. from Vietnam, Neohenigaster antropovi sp.n. from the Russian Far East, Neohemigaster tetralineata sp.n. from Taiwan and Pterogenia tenebrica sp.n. from Taiwan. In addition to Neohemigaster ussurica (Korneyev, 2001), six species formerly assigned to Pterogenia are transferred to Neoheinigaster: Neohemigaster eurysterna (Hendel, 1914) comb. nov., Neoheinigaster flavopicta (Hennig, 1940) comb. nov., Neohemigaster minuspicta (Hennig, 1940) comb. nov., Neohemigaster inonticola (Frey, 1964) comb. nov., Neohenigaster ornata (Hennig, 1940) comb. nov., and Neoheinigaster rectivena (Enderlein, 1924) comb. nov. A preliminary list of diagnostic characters separating the genera Pterogenia and Neohenigaster is compiled. A key to species of Pterogenia and Neohentigaster, known from Far East Russia, Japan, China, Taiwan, Vietnam and Burma, is provided.
