The subfamily Maldaninae is revised. Important generic characters include the shape of the prostomial palpode, lateral cephalic lobes and nuchal organs, the types of notosetae, the presence of an anal valve and/or a collar on setiger 1, the number of asetigcrous preanal segments, and the development and shape of the pygidium. Three species orginally described as members of the genus Asychis are transferred to the genus Maldane: M. capensis, M. glabra and M. theodori. Maldane remains poorly known and probably consists of several generic-level groups of species. In addition to the foregoing, Maldane includes M. arctica, M. cristata, M. cuculligera, M. decorata, M. glebifex (genotype), M. gorgonensis, M. malmgreni, M. marsupialis, M. meridionalis, M. monilata, M. pellucida, M. philippinensis, and M. sarsi (with four subspecies). The genus Asychis is restricted and includes A. amphiglyptus (with two subspecies), A. atlanticus (genotype), A. auritus, A. chilensis, A. ramosus, and A. trifilosus. Chirimia nom. n. is proposed to replace Chrysothemis, a junior homonym, and Kinberg's concept of that genus is revived. Chirimia includes C. amoena (genotype), C. biceps (with two subspecies), C. punctata, C. similis, and C. fauchaldi sp. n. Metasychis gen. n. is proposed to include M. collariceps, M. disparidentatus (designated genotype), M. fimbriatus, and M. gotoi. The genus Sabaco is resurrected and includes S. atlantideus, S. carolinae, S. dakarensis, S. dorsofilis, S. elongatus [which includes both Branchioasychis colmani and B. americana], S. gangeticus, S. javanicus, S. maculatus (genotype), and S. steineri sp. n. The genus Bathyasychis contains a single species, B. cristatus. Asychis victoriae Benham is considered to be incertae sedis in view of the inadequate description and unavailability of the holotype.
