ABSTRACT. The taxonomic status of two Asian species of the spider family Deinopidae is discussed. Asianopis aruensis (Roewer, 1938) comb.n. is transferred from Deinopis MacLeay, 1839. Deinopis gubatmakiling Barrion-Dupo et Barrion, 2018 is treated as a nomen dubium. Additionally, the placement of five other species of Southeast Asian Deinopis in Asianopis Lin et Li, 2020 is proposed.

KEY WORDS: Araneae, nomen dubium, new combination, Southeast Asia.
