Contribution to the Asian and Afrotropical species of the genus Dyschiriodes (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Scaritinae).
Seven new species of the genus Dyschiriodes Jeannel, 1959 are described, illustrated and compared to the related taxa: D. sabahensis sp. nov. from Malaysia (Sabah), D. hajeki sp. nov. from China (Yunnan), D. kadleci sp. nov. from India (Maharashtra), D. facchinii sp. nov. from Thailand, D. jelineki sp. nov. from Iran, D. ruthmuellerae sp. nov. from South Africa and D. genieri sp. nov. from Burkina Faso and Ghana. The holotype and additional material of D. kalalae (Mařan, 1935) are studied and the synonymy of this species to D. cariniceps (Baudi di Selva, 1864) is confirmed. Finally, the holotype and additional specimens of D. disjunctus (Andrewes, 1929) are examined, its status is refined and the first record from China (Yunnan) is given.
