Abstract: The Tribasodites bedosae Yin & Li, 2011 species-group is designated to accommodate the cavernicolous species placed in the genus Tribasodites Jeannel, 1960. This group includes three previously described species from the Chinese province of Guangxi, Tribasodites bedosae Yin & Li, 2011, T. deharvengi Yin & Li, 2011, and T. tiani Yin & Li, 2011, and ten new species discovered in China and Thailand: T. hubeiensis sp. nov. from Hubei, central China, T. abnormalis sp. nov., T. cehengensis sp. nov., T. liboensis sp. nov., T. setosiventris sp. nov., and T. xingyiensis sp. nov. from Guizhou, southwestern China, T. bama sp. nov., T. kawadai sp. nov., T. uenoi sp. nov. from Guangxi, southwestern China, and T. thailandicus sp. nov. from Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. The new species are described, and the male habitus and important diagnostic features are illustrated. Distributions of members of the T. bedosae group are approximately mapped based on the label data. A key for identification of males is given. A species list of East Asian cave-inhabiting Pselaphinae is provided.
