ABSTRACT. A new genus, Singatrichona gen.n., with Singatrichona longipes sp.n. as the type species, is described based on a single male from Singapore. The new genus and species presently fail to show any clear-cut relations among the known Oriental Erigoninae, but some superficial resemblance is noted to a few Palaearctic genera, especially Trichoncus Simon, 1884. Caviphantes pseudosaxetorum Wunderlich, 1979 is recorded from Sri Lanka and Sumatra, Indonesia for the first time; Nasoona crucifera (Thorell, 1895) is new to the Sumatran fauna; N. orissa Tanasevitch, 2018 is new to the Sri Lankan list; and Ostearius melanopygius (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1880) is new to the fauna of Java, Indonesia.

KEY WORDS: taxonomy, faunistics, Arachnida, Linyphiinae, Erigoninae, Indo-Malay Region, Southeastern Asia.
