The generalized tight-binding model, being based on the spin-dependent sublattices, is developed to explore the magnetic quantization of monolayer bismuthene. The sp3 orbital hybridizations, site energies, nearest and next-nearest hopping integrals, spin-orbital interactions and magnetic field (B z ) are taken into account simultaneously. There exist three groups of low-lying Landau levels (LLs), in which they are mainly from the (6px, 6py, 6pz) orbitals, and only the first group belongs to the unoccupied conduction states. Furthermore, each group is further split into the spin-up- and spin-down-dominated subgroups. The six subgroups present the rich and unique B z-dependent LL energy spectra, covering the specific or arc-shaped B z-dependences, the normal/irregular spin-split energies, and the non-crossing/crossing/anti-crossing behaviors. Specially, the second group of valence LLs near the Fermi level can create the frequent inter-subgroup LL anti-crossings since the main and side modes are comparable. The main features of energy spectra can create the special structures in density of states.
