The javanicus-group of the basically southeast Asian genus Glyphiulus is shown to currently comprise 22 species, of which four are new: G. echinoides sp.n., from a cave in Guangxi Province, China, as well as G. subechinoides sp.n., G. parechinoides sp.n. and G. submediator sp.n., all three latter species from Vietnam. Besides this, a new record is provided, and additional abundant illustrations are presented, for G. mediobliteratus Golovatch, Geoffroy, Mauriès & VandenSpiegel, 2007, from a cave in northeastern Vietnam. The species G. vietnamicus Mauriès, 1977, from a cave in northern Vietnam, is formally ejected from the javanicus-group, instead being transferred to Hypocambala Silvestri, 1897; this results in H. vietnamica (Mauriès, 1977), comb.n.
