The Oriental genera and species of Plastotephritinae (Diptera: Platystomatidae) are revised. A key to genera in the Oriental Region is provided and diagnoses are given for the only two genera known to occur there, namely Agadasys gen. n. and Rhegmatosaga Frey, 1930. One new species, Agadasys hexablepharis sp. n. is described. Only seventeen specimens are available for this subfamily from the Oriental Region. The scarcity of the material available is thought to be a result of low collecting effort rather than due to scarcity, since collecting localities are widely distributed.
