The monotypiC genus Gorochovitettix Storozhenko et Pushkar, gen. nov. (type species Gorochovitettix kannackiensis Storozhenko et Pushkar, sp. nov. from Vietnam) is described in the subfamily Metrodorinae. The new genus is similar to the genus Orthotettix Hancock, 1909 from Malaysia, differing from the latter by the fore and mid femora considerably compressed laterally with the leaf-like upper and lower carinae. The new genus is similar to the genera Vaotettix Podgornaja, 1986 from Vietnam and Paramphinotus Zheng in Zheng and Ou, 2004 from South China by the distinctly widened frontal ridge, differing from them by the antennal socket placed distinctly below the lower margin of eye.
