The systematics of the freshwater ostracods of the subfamily Dolerocypridinae in Southeast Asia is reviewed. A total of five species are known and they are assigned to three genera. Astenocypris papyracea (Sars) 1903 and Dolerocypris sinensis Sars, 1903 are redescribed. Dolerocypris fasciata (Müller) 1776, from Indonesia is figured and the hitherto observed variations are discussed. Doleracypris pellucida Klie, 1932 is transferred to the genus Tanycypris Triebel, 1959.
