ABSTRACT. Material of Oriental Tersilochinae (Ichneumonidae) from the insect collection of the Matsuyama University, Japan, was examined. From this material, two species are described as new to science: Probles (Probles) lompobattanga Khalaim, sp.n. from North India and Diaparsis (Diaparsis) bengalensis Khalaim, sp.n. from Indonesia. Allophrys miklouhomaclayi Khalaim et Villemant, 2019 is newly recorded from Indonesia and its male is described for the first time. Unlike other species of Allophrys Förster whose males have weakly to strongly enlarged compound eyes, the male of A. miklouhomaclayi possesses unspecialized (not enlarged) eyes. Colour photographs of the Oriental species Diaparsis niphadoctona He, 1995 are given for the first time.

KEY WORDS: India, Indonesia, new species, taxonomy, parasitoids, sexual dimorphism.
