ABSTRACT. This paper describes two new genera (Junxattus gen.n. and Leuserattus gen.n.) and 12 new species from Sumatra and Java: Bathippus petrae sp.n., Donoessus kerinci sp.n., Emathis sumatranus sp.n., Heratemita tenenbaumi sp.n., Junxattus daiqini sp.n., Leuserattus gunung sp.n., Nannenus maughami sp.n., N. siedleckii sp.n., Orcevia kuloni sp.n., Orsima thaleri sp.n., Phintella conradi sp.n., Pseudicius javanicus sp.n., as well as first description of unknown female of Thianitara spectrum Simon, 1903. A related species Th. thailandica sp.n. is described from Thailand. Genus Orcevia Thorell, 1890 is removed from synonymy with Laufeia Simon, 1889, and following new combinations of SE Asian species created: Laufeia eucola (Thorell, 1890) = O. eucola Thorell, 1890, L. keyserlingi (Thorell, 1890) = O. keyserlingi Thorell, 1890, L. perakensis (Simon, 1901) = O. perakensis Simon, 1901, L. proszynskii Song et al., 1988 = O. proszynskii (Song et al., 1988). comb.n. Taxonomic problems are discussed and new drawings added to the species Epeus flavobilineatus (Doleschall, 1859), Leikung porosa (Wanless, 1978), Mintonia tauricornis Wanless, 1984, Phaeacius fimbriatus Simon, 1900, and Taraxella sumatrana Wanless, 1987. The genus Emathis Simon, 1899 is redefined and its name restricted to the Southeastern Asian species only. Five Caribbean species earlier considered in Emathis are transferred into a new genus Petemathis gen.n.: P. luteopunctata (Petrunkevitch, 1930) comb.n, P. minuta (Petrunkevitch, 1930) comb.n., P. portoricensis (Petrunkevitch, 1930) comb.n (type species), P. tetuani (Petrunkevitch, 1930) comb.n. and P. unispina (Franganillo, 1930) comb.n.
