ABSTRACT. This contribution is devoted to descriptions of Touranella hirsuta sp.n. from south-central Vietnam, as well as of Kronopolites montanus sp.n. and Sapamorpha complexa gen.n., sp.n. (Orthomorphini), both from northern Vietnam. Sapamorpha gen.n. differs especially readily in the presence of a large and deeply tripartite lamina medialis of the solenophore, in which one of the parts is a nearly fully separated lobe at its base. A key is provided to all seven currently known species of Kronopolites Attems, 1914.
