Genus Parapholidoptera is revised and three species, P. yoruka sp.n., P. bolkauensis sp.n. and P. salmani sp.n., are described. Parapholidoptera delineata Stolyarov is placed in synonymy with P. ziganensis Karabag:. Parapholidoptera bodenheimeri Karabag and P. distincta bodenheimeri Karabag are placed in synonymy with P. distincta (Uvarov). Parapholidoptera flexuosa Karabag, previously a subspecies of P. castaneoviridis (Brunner von Wattenwyl), is recognized as a separate species. A key to world species is provided. Cladistic analysis revealed the monophyly of the genus with two major clades. A short account of distribution is presented.
