A new genus, Mayawa, is created for the Australian leafhopper species Limotettix capitatus Kirkaldy (1907). Mayawa capitata (Kirkaldy) is redescribed and five new species, Mayawa carolae, Mayawa facialis, Mayawa flava, Mayawa fusca and Mayawa neoflava are added to the genus. Illustrations of all six species are provided, as is a key for their separation. The genus is restricted to Australia and the species are primarily grass-feeding.
