Abstract:This revision of the genus Maua presents descriptions, illustrations and distribution maps of 8 species of the genus occurring in Sundaland: the Malayan Peninsula, Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Palawan. Six species are redescribed: M. affinis Distant, 1905, M. albigutta (Walker, 1857), M. latilinea (Walker, 1868), M. linggana Moulton, 1923, M. platygaster Ashton, 1912 and M. quadrituberculata (Signoret, 1847). Two species are described as new to science: M. borneensis sp. n. and M. palawanensis sp. n. Two other species proved to be synonyms: M. ackermanni Schmidt, 1924 is a junior synonym of M. quadrituberculata and M. dohrni Schmidt, 1912 is a junior synonym of M. latilinea. Three species of Maua, two from China and one from the Philippines are not included in this paper. A key for the identification of the Sundaland species of Maua is presented. J.P.
