This paper deals with four genera and eight species of the subfamily Dataminae Rehn & Rehn, 1939 from China. One new genus and four new species, Hainanphasma cristata Ho gen. nov. spec. nov., H. diaoluoshanensis Ho spec. nov., Pylaemenespui Ho spec. nov. and Pylaemenes shirakii Ho & Brock spec. nov., are described and illustrated. A new combination is proposed: Planispectrum hainanensis (Chen & He, 2008) comb. nov. is transferred from Pylaemenes Stål, 1875 and its male and egg are described for the first time. The occurrence of Orestes mouhotii (Bates, 1865) in China is reconfirmed assessed by an adult specimen collected from Yunnan Province. Pylaemenes guangxiensis (Bi & Li, 1994) is reported for the first time from Vietnam outside the range of China. Keys to the genera and species of the Chinese Dataminae are given.
