Abstract. Eighteen species of the Spartaeinae are considered in the present paper. Ten are diagnosed and described as new species: Brettus storki sp.n. (??; Brunei); Meleon insulanus sp.n. (??, Madagascar). M. raharizonina sp.n. (?, Madagascar); M. tsaratanana sp.n. (?, Madagascar); Mintonia ignota sp.n. (?, Northern Thailand); Spartaeus abramovi sp.n. (??, Vietnam); S. banthamus sp.n. (?, Laos); S. jaegeri sp.n. (?, Laos); S. noctivagus sp.n. (??, Laos); and Veissella milloti sp.n. (?, the Comoros). Two poorly known species are illustrated and redescribed: Spartaeus thailandicus Wanless, 1984 (?, Northern Thailand) and S. zhangi Peng et Li, 2002 (??, Laos). The female of S. zhangi is described for the first time. Additional faunistic records and comments are given for six species: Gelotia lanka Wijesinghe, 1991 (?, Sri Lanka); Portia albimana (Simon, 1900) (?, Sri Lanka); P. fimbriata (Doleschall, 1859) (??, Sri Lanka and Malaysia); P. labiata (Thorell 1882) (??, Sri Lanka and Singapore); P. schultzi Karsch, 1878 (?, Madagascar); and Spartaeus spinimanus (Thorell, 1878) (??, Singapore and Thailand).
