ABSTRACT. Two new scaritine carabids, Leleuporella tuberculata sp.n. and Striganoviella subopaca gen.n. & sp.n., are described from Vietnam. The former genus belongs to the subtribe Clivinina, Clivinini, and is first recorded in Indochina, this being a far eastward extension of the genus range within the Oriental realm. The latter genus is a member of the tribe Dyschiriini and established here for the species which shows a particular combination of characters. Some of them are unique for the tribe while some others, e.g., secondarily entire postmentum, occur nowhere else but in the North American genus Akephorus LeConte, 1851.
