Twenty-two species of the genus Ecnomus McLachlan (Ecnomidae: Trichoptera) from the People's Republic of China are described or re-described, among which eighteen species are new to science. One additional species is considered a nomen dubium. A phylogeny of these 22 species is inferred from the adult male characters, using PAUP. Four monophyletic species groups are recognized within the genus. A phylogeny of the genera in the whole family is also inferred with PAUP from information in all life stages. Ecnomus and Psychomyiellodes Mosely are sister lineages. Their sister lineage is((Austrotinodea + Ecnomina) + Parecnomina) + Parecnomina resima. A new genus probably is needed for Parecnomina resima Morse.
