Seven new species of Paracentronodus Sakakibara, 1971 from Brazil, are described: P. canarinus sp. n. (type loc: Pedro Canário, Espírito Santo); P. cristatus sp. n. (type loc: Sinop, Mato Grosso); P. favisiae sp. n. (type loc: Encruzilhada, Bahia); P. nalalinae sp. n. (type loc: Caraça, Minas Gerais); P. nevesi sp. n. (type loc: Caruaru, Pernambuco); P. nigrostriatus sp. n. (type loc: Sinop, Mato Grosso), and P. urbanae sp. n. (type loc: Encruzilhada, Bahia). Hemiptycha viridistriga Walker, 1858, considered by Metcalf & Wade (1965) in Hypheodana Metcalf, 1952, as Darninae genus, is transferred to Centronodinae, as Paracentronodus viridistriga (Walker, 1858) comb. n. Illustrations and a key for the species are also given.

Key words: Homoptera, Membracidae, Centronodinae, Paracentronodus, new species
