Recently collected materials held at the Musée National d'Histoire Naturelle (Paris) yielded important nezv information on the Clausiliidae of Laos and Vietnam. The data considerably increase and refine the hitherto scarce knowledge on the distribution of the Garnieria Bourguignat, 1877 and Grandinenia Minato & Chen, 1984 species of Laos, and reveal a new Vietnamese subgenus, Garnieria (Doducsangia) subgen. nov. (type species: Garnieria mouhoti nhuongi Do, 2015). From the Hon Ba Nature Reserve of Vietnam's Khanh Hoa Province Oospira naggsi parva subsp. nov., Castanophaedusa fontainei gen. nov. sp. nov., and Messageriella gargominyi gen. nov. sp. nov. are described as new taxa. The zoogeographical significance of these findings is discussed.
