A review of the genus Piptospatha N.E.Br. is presented with new generic boundaries implemented since the last full revision. 10 species are recognized, two of them (P. marginata (Engl.) N.E.Br. & P. repens H.Okada & Tsukaya) recognized  only recently as distinct species. Two species (P. angustifolia Engl. ex Alderw. and P. remiformis Ridl.) are treated as  inadequately known. A key to accepted species is given, and all species are illustrated, the majority from living plants.
