The phylogenetic relationships of the species of Paduniella are analyzed based on characters of larvae, pupae, and adults (mainly male genitalia). The genus is monophyletic and most closely related to Psychomyia, and Metalype in the subfamily Psychomyiinae. Nine species groups are suggested. Eight species including six new to science are reported from the People’s Republic of China for the first time.
