Fourteen species of the subgenus Sinotipula (Diptera, Tipulidae) were previously known to occur in China. Here four species are described and illustrated as new to science: Tipula (Sinotipula) drolma sp. nov., T. (S.) forcipicauda sp. nov., T. (S.) heminga sp. nov. and T. (S.) longiloba sp. nov. The following three species are redescribed: T. (S.) exquisita Alexander, 1935, T. (S.) hobsoni Edwards, 1928 and T. (S.) wardi Edwards, 1928, and a key to the species of Tipula (Sinotipula) from China is presented. We also give a new replacement name for Tipula (Vestiplex) bucera Yang, Li, Pan, Liu & Yang, 2021, i.e., T. (V.) curvicornis nom. nov.
