Abstract: The taxonomic status of three genera (Donus Jekel, 1865, Brachypera Capiomont, 1868 stat. restit., and Hypera Germar, 1817) in the tribe Hyperini is clarified, including the identity of the type species of each genus, and problematic groups in each genus are commented. Neoglanis Alonso-Zarazaga & Lyal, 1999, is recognized as a junior synonym of Donus, because its type species, Phytonomus velutinus Boheman, 1842, is congeneric with Rhynchaenus philanthus Olivier, 1807, the type species of Donus. Subsequently, Brachypera is resurrected from synonymy and used to accomodate species previously assigned to Donus and not congeneric with Rhynchaenus philanthus; Phytonomus crinitus Boheman, 1834, is designated as the type species of Brachypera. Pseudhypera Capiomont, 1868, is a new junior synonym of Brachypera; Hypera reichei Capiomont, 1868, is designated as the type species of Pseudhypera. Antidonus Bedel, 1886, is trans- ferred to Brachypera and included as a subgenus. A list of species belonging to the genera Donus and Brachypera is given, including 146 new combinations. The nomenclatoric situation of Phytonomus Schoenherr, 1823, previously recognized as an unnecessary replacement name for Hypera Germar, 1817, is reviewed.
