The present work provides a revised diagnosis of the genus Leogorrus Stål and its species, digital colour figures of habitus, and illustrations of the male and female genitalia, as well as a key to the species. Two synonymies are established: L. incommodus (Walker) as junior synonym of L. ochropus (Stål), and L. insculptus Hussey of L. minusculus (Walker). Lectotype specimens are designated for all valid species. The fifth instars of L. litura (Fabricius) is described and illustrated. Considerable new distributional information is recorded: L. fasciatus from Costa Rica; L. immaculatus from Colombia, Guiana, Honduras, and Panama; L. interruptus from Bolivia, Costa Rica, and El Salvador; L. litura from Belize, Ecuador, El Salvador, Paraguay, Peru, and Surinam; L. longiceps from Belize and Honduras; L. minusculus from French Guiana; and L. pallipes from Argentina, Guiana, and Paraguay. Maps showing geographic distribution are given.
