Abstract: The taxonomy of the Southeast Asian Hymenosomatidae is revised. Twenty-four species in 10 genera are now known from Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia and western Indonesia, of which two genera (Apechocinus and Crustaenia) and eight species (Amarinus crenulatus, A. pumilus, Apechocinus streptophallus, Elamena magna, E. simplidenta, E. sundaica, Elamenopsis comosa and Neorhynchoplax prima) are described as new. The genus Elamenopsis A. Milne Edwards, 1873, is revised and separated into three genera - Elamenopsis s. str., Neorhynchoplax Sakai, 1938 (previously synonymised under Elamenopsis), Crustaenia, new genus. The genus Limnopilos Chuang & Ng, 1991, is regarded as a junior synonym of Hymenicoides Kemp, 1917. The taxonomy of nine species from Madagascar, Africa, Taiwan, China, Japan and Australia is also discussed.
