ABSTRACT. The genus Dischissus Bates, 1873 is rendered monobasic by moving the D. notulatus species group to Adischissus gen.n. and transferring the remaining Dischissus species except D. mirandus Bates, 1873 to the microspilotus species group of Craspedophorus Hope, 1838. Adischissus quadrinotatus Motschulsky, 1865, sp. bon., is resurrected from synonymy with Dischissus notulatus (Fabricius, 1801). Microcosmodes pallipes sp.n. from Vietnam is described. Two species, M. elegans (Dejean, 1826), comb.n. and M. laticornis (Kirschenhofer, 2000), comb.n., are transferred from Craspedophorus to Microcosmodes. The name M. barkeri, nom.n., is proposed for the secondary junior homonym M. elegans (Barker, 1922), n.praeocc.
