Chin-wen Chen described 28 species and 10 subspecies of the velvet ant genus Smicromyrme Thomson, 1870 in his 1957 revision of the Mutillidae of China and Taiwan. Most of them were subsequently transferred to 12 genera of the tribes Smicromyrmini Bischoff, 1920 and Trogaspidiini Bischoff, 1920. Four species and one subspecies, however, are still included in Smicromyrme. In the present paper, type specimens of these species are surveyed. As a result, Sinotilla serpa columnata (Chen, 1957), comb. nov., stat. nov. (♂), Si. spinicauda (Chen, 1957), comb. nov. (♀), and Si. trisecta (Chen, 1957), comb. nov. (♂) are transferred from Smicromyrme. Smicromyrme bidenticulatus Chen, 1957 (♂♀) and Sm. triguttatus Mickel, 1933 (= Sm. triguttatus latisquamula Chen, 1957, syn. nov.) (♀) remain in Smicromyrme. Smicromyrme (Erimyrme) triguttatus is newly recorded from Vietnam and Laos, and Mickelomyrme kuznetsovi Lelej, 1996 is newly recorded from China.
