Eight new species of the genus Spinaria Brullé (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Rogadinae) are described and illustrated: Spinaria altimontana spec. nov. and S. campania spec. nov. from Papua, S. australiensis spec. nov. from Australia, S. incisa spec. nov. and S. eburata spec. nov. from Philippines, S. triangulifera spec. nov. from Myanmar, S. sundana spec. nov. from West Malaysia and S. hyalinata spec. nov. from Sumatra. Three species (and two varieties) are synonymised: Spinaria fuscipennis Brullé, 1846, S. curvispina Cameron, 1902, S. curvispina var. nigricauda Enderlein, 1905, and S. curvispina var. udei Enderlein, 1905, with S. armator Fabricius, 1804, and S. bhotanensis Cameron, 1906, with S. flavipennis Cameron, 1906. A lectotype is designated for Batotheca dohrniana Enderlein, 1905, Spinaria westwoodi Cameron, 1906 and S. curvispina Cameron, 1902, to stabilize the nomenclature of the group. Three taxa are re-instated: Spinaria bicolor Szépligeti, 1902, S. philippinensis Enderlein, 1905 and S. flavipennis Cameron, 1906. For the first time a key to species of the genus Spinaria Brullé is given. A key to genera of the subtribe Spinariina van Achterberg is included and the type species (but a closely related species for Cornutorogas) of each genus is fully illustrated. Keys to the known species of the genera Spinariella Szépligeti (with S. nigrita spec. nov. from Sarawak and S. tulungi spec. nov. from Sulawesi), Batotheca Enderlein (with B. quickei spec. nov. from Australia), Conspinaria Schulz (with C. chenhei spec. nov. from China and Japan, C. olthofi spec. nov. from Papua and C. sundana spec. nov. from Malaysia) and Cornutorogas Chen et al. are also provided.
