ABSTRACT. Five new species groups and one new subgroups of Craspedophorus Hope, 1838 are defined and keyed. Ten new species and subspecies, C. dalatensis sp.n., C. d. abramovi ssp.n., C. d. kruskopi ssp.n., C. breviceps sp.n., C. pallidicornis sp.n., C. kabakovi sp.n., C. sparsepunctatus sp.n., C. expansicollis sp.n., and C. crebrepunctatus sp.n., all from Vietnam, and C. affinis sp.n. from Laos, are described. Craspedophorus basifasciatus (Chaudoir, 1869) is downgraded to a subspecies of C. saundersii (Chaudoir, 1869).
