Summary. Numerous new myrmecophilous Chlamydopsinae have recently been discovered, primarily through the use of large-area flight interception traps, in Australia and the Indo-Malayan region. Here 45 species are described bringing the total world fauna of the subfamily up to 139 species. The species described herein are all members of a well-defined monophyletic group within the subfamily, characterized by a reduction of the scutellum such that it is no longer exposed dorsally. Species are described in the genera Ceratohister Reichensperger (3 sp.), Eucurtiopsis Silvestri (11 sp.), Orectoscelis Lewis (10 sp.), and Pheidoliphila (21 sp.). The limits of these genera are also redefined. Even so, evidence for monophyly of any of them remains weak.
