ABSTRACT. Seven Oriental and two Afrotropical species of Abacetina (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Pterostichini) are reviewed. A new genus, Holcoferonia gen.n., and new four species, H. tenuimargo sp.n. and Tiferonia trapezicollis sp.n. from Vietnam, T. sumatrensis sp.n. from Sumatra, and Holconotus elongatus sp.n. from Namibia are described. Holconotus lioderus Tschitschérine, 1898, stat.rest., is resurrected from synonymy of H. ferrugineus Schmidt-Gцbel, 1846, with lectotype designated, and H. sinuatus Tschitschérine, 1898 is re-described based on male holotype. Relations between Holcoferonia gen.n., Holconotus and Tiferonia are briefly discussed, based on mental comparative analysis of some characters, including those of leg setation, male and female genitalia.

KEY WORDS: Coleoptera, Carabidae, Pterostichini, new genus, new species, new synonymy, Vietnam.
