Culcua

is characterized as a well separated genus of the subfamily Pachygastrinae. In addition to the haired eyes and the unusually short vein R

2+3

, a new autapomorphic character (an additional tube in the phallic complex) is defined. Only two valid species were previously recognized, both distributed exclusively in the Oriental Region. Our revisional study of material from several institutions resulted in the description of 7 new species and one resurrection from synonymy.

Culcua argentea

sp.n. is described from Laos,

C. chaineyi

sp.n. from Malaysia,

C. fasciata

sp.n. from the Philippines,

C. kolibaci

from Laos, Malaysia and Thailand,

C. kovaci

sp.n. from Laos and Thailand,

C. normani

sp.n. from East Malaysia and

C. ornans

from India.

C. albopilosa

(Matsumura) from Taiwan is considered to be distinct from the type species of the genus,

C. simulans

Walker, being distributed in Malaysia.

C. nigra

Brunetti described from Laos is also recorded from Thailand. Two new species are documented by colour illustrations, three additional species by colour photographs and figures of diagnostic characters of all the treated species are included. An identification key to the all known species of

Culcua

is added.
