New country or provincial records are provided for ten known species: Labomimus bannaus Yin & Li, 2013, Labomimus maolan Zhang, Li & Yin, 2019, Labomimus shii (Yin & Li, 2012), comb. nov. (transferred from Pselaphodes Westwood, 1870), Linan fortunatus Yin & Li, 2013, Paralasinus gigas Hlaváč & Nomura, 2001, Pselaphodes hainanensis Yin & Li, 2013, Pselaphodes incisus Huang, Li & Yin, 2018, Pselaphodes linae Yin & Li, 2012, Pselaphodes paraculeus Huang, Li & Yin, 2018, and Taiwanophodes magnus Bekchiev, 2010. An identification key to the 26 species of the complex that occur in Laos and Vietnam is provided.
