ABSTRACT. Seven new species of the genus Parathlibops Basilewsky, 1958, P. (s.str.) nepalensis sp.n. from Nepal, P. (s.str.) alveolatus sp.n. and P. (s.str.) cavipennis sp.n. from Laos, P. (s.str.) abramovi sp.n. and P. (s.str.) cylindronotus sp.n. from Vietnam, P. (s.str.) punctipennis sp.n. from the Philippines, and P. (Scapterotlibops subg.n.) bulirschi sp.n. from southern India, are described. The genus is redescribed and key to its species provided. Relationships between Parathlibops and other members of the subtribe Scapterina Putzeys, 1866, as well as between Scapterina and other Scaritini, are discussed based on comparative morphology. Oxylobina Andrewes, 1929, syn.n., and Acanthoscelitina Csiki, 1927, syn.n., are synonymized with Scapterina. The monobasic tribe Corintascarini Basilewsky, 1973 is reinstated from synonyms of Scaritina.
