An emended diagnosis of Eumanota Edwards, 1933 is given. All available material of previously described species has been studied, and three new species are described, E. malukuensis from Maluku (Moluccas), Indonesia, E. racoli sp. n. from Thailand, and E. suthepensis sp. n. from Thailand and Laos. The monotypic genus Promanota Tuomikoski, 1966 is considered to be a subjective junior synonym of Eumanota. In all, six species are included in the genus, all from the Oriental region.
