The genus Rhinotorus Förster, 1869 is revised. Thirteen species are recognized including 3 species that are new to science (R. jussilai sp. nov., R. campester sp. nov., R. tarsilatus sp. nov.). Saotis brachycerus (Kasparyan & Kopelke, 2009) comb. nov. is considered to be a member of the genus Saotis. Rhinotorus similis (Brischke, 1892) is tentatively recorded from Austria and Sweden for the first time. A number of new host records are also provided: Cladius pectinicornis (Geoffroy, 1785) for R. leucostomus (Gravenhorst, 1829), Nematus lucidus (Panzer, 1801) for R. nasutus (Gravenhorst, 1829) and N. papillosus (Retzius, 1783) for R. jussilai sp. nov.
