ABSTRACT. The polytypic genus Amphimenes Bates, 1873 is subdivided into three subgenera, including Amphinemes subg.n. and Amblops Andrewes, 1931, stat.n., the latter being formerly considered as a separate monobasic genus. Ten new species, Amphimenes acutipennis sp.n., A. basipunctatus sp.n., A. bicoloripes sp.n., A. femoralis sp.n., A. konplongensis sp.n., A. marginicollis sp.n., A. ruficollis sp.n., A. similis sp.n., A. subcostatus sp.n., and A. tonkinensis sp.n., all from Vietnam, are described. A refined key to species is provided and new records are briefly discussed. New synonymy is established: A. ryukyuensis Habu, 1969 = A. carinacaulis Hunting et Yang, 2019, syn.n.

KEY WORDS: Coleoptera, Carabidae, Amblops, Amphimenes, new subgenus, species, new synonym, new record, Vietnam, Oriental region.
