- Heterosminthurus bilineatus - moderately common (see below).
- Heterosminthurus claviger - rare, a montane species found in pennine grasslands (similar in appearance to H. bilineatus, see below).
- Heterosminthurus insignis - moderately common (a uniform yellow colour).
- Heterosminthurus novemlineatus - very rare (yellow in colour with several (usually nine hence novemlineatus) longitudinal bands of dark pigment).

H. claviger males (but not females) have peculiar paddle-shaped interocular setae.
The fourth antennal segment (ant4) is subdivided into about six subsegments:
