The Asian species of Euaspis are reviewed. Euaspis carbonaria of authors is shown to be composite: a lectotype is designated and the species with which carbonaria has long been confused is described as Euaspis edentata spec. nov. Euaspis lorenzae spec. nov. is described from the Philippines and E. wegneri spec. nov. from Bacan (Moluccas). Two species described by Pasteels from 'Arabia' are shown to be of Bornean origin. Euaspis bakeri (Viereck, 1924) is synonymized with E. strandi Meyer, 1922, for which a lectotype is designated (the type locality Sikhim given by Meyer for this taxon is apparently false), and E. impressa (Viereck, 1924) with E. polynesia Vachal, 1903.
