The oriental genus Korinchia Edwards, 1919 is revised. The phylogeny and status of the genus is discussed. It is concluded that the Pterallastes group of genera (Korinchia, Pterallastes Loew and Palumbia Rondani) is the sister group of Milesia Latreille. The subdivision of the Pterallastes group in two genera (Pterallastes and Palumbia) is rejected and Korinchia is reinstated as valid genus. Nine new species are described: K. citronella from Vietnam, K. demeijerei from Sumatra, K. flavissima from China, K. himalayensis from Nepal and China, K. iuxtacavea from Malaysia, K. kambaitica from Burma, K. lieftincki from Java, K. ocellata from Burma, and K. sanguinea from Thailand. The male of K. robinsoni Edwards and the females of K. apicalis Shiraki and K. tenax (Thompson) are described for the first time. Lectotypes and paralectotypes are designated for K. minor (De Meijere), K. monticola Edwards, and K. simulans (De Meijere). One new synonymy (K. aurata Hervé-Bazin = K. simulans) is proposed. A key and descriptions of all species are given.
