Abstract: Indostola kaengkrachanensis sp. nov. from Thailand is described. Pseudochillus gen. nov. is described and subdivided into three subgenera: P. (Pseudochillus subgen. nov.), P. (Kaszabochillus subgen. nov.), and P. (Micropseudochillus subgen. nov.). Two species of the genus Indochillus are transferred to Pseudochillus: P. (P.) bangaloreanus (Kaszab, 1981) comb. nov. and P. (Kaszabochillus) andamanus (Kaszab, 1981) comb. nov. Additionally, five new species are described: Pseudochillus (Pseudochillus) aalbui sp. nov. (India), Pseudochillus (Kaszabochillus) helferi sp. nov. (Myanmar), Pseudochillus (Micropseudochi­llus) palawanus sp. nov. (Philippines: Palawan), P. (M.). thailandicus sp. nov. (Thailand), and P. (M.) indochinensis sp. nov. (Laos, Vietnam). Tagenostola albovillosa Koch, 1940 stat. nov., described as subspecies of T. turkestanica (Reitter 1886), is rised to species rank. Diagnostic characters for all discussed genera and species are illustrated. A key to species of Pseudochillus gen. nov. and allied genera of the subtribe Dichillina (sensu Reitter 1916) is provided. New faunistic records of Stenosini from Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam are presented.
