The systematic position of the genus Decimiana Uvarov and its species are re-examined. Based on the anatomical structure of the copulatory apparatus, four species are now recognized in this genus, where before two species were included in it. These species are D. tessellata (Charpentier, 1841); D. rehni (Chopard, 1913), n. comb.; D. bolivari (Chopard, 1916), n. comb.; and D. hebardi, n. sp. The males of D. rehni and D. bolivari are described for the first time. A neotype is selected for D. tessellata.
