ABSTRACT. Four new ground-beetle species, Amphimenes guttatus sp.n., A. planipennis sp.n., A. micros sp.n., and Taridius marginipennis sp.n., are described from Vietnam. The following nomenclative changes are made: Amphimenes Bates, 1873 = Pseudosinurus Kirschenhofer, 1999, syn.n.; Pseudosinurus brunneus = Amphimenes brunneus (Kirschenhofer, 1999), comb.n.; A. medius Fedorenko, 2010 = A. minutus Fedorenko, 2010, syn.n.?; Gnopherus Andrewes, 1940 = Amphimenoides Kirschehofer 1999, syn.n.; Amphimenoides maculatus = Gnopherus maculatus (Kirschehofer, 1999), comb.n.; Taridius Chaudoir, 1875 = Morphaeus Kirschenhofer, 1999, syn.n.; Taridius niger Andrewes, 1935 = Morphaeus corosus Kirschenhofer, 1999, syn.n. A refined identification key to species of Amphimenes is proposed. New records of some representatives of the genera Amphimenes and Taridius are discussed.
