Diagnoses of genera of South East Asia: Lechia (5-6; ?). This monotypic genus was erected for a single female, L. squamata, collected in Vietnam. In appearance it is somewhat like Euophrys and was beaten from bushes. The cephalothorax is described as slender. The abdomen is oval, widest near the slightly pointed rear. The legs are not described in detail, but some spines are mentioned. The carapace is mainly orange or orange-brown with a broad yellow band near the margin. The eye surrounds of the front median eyes are brown-black and for the rest they are black. The abdomen is yellowish with numerous flecks of grey squamose hairs. The legs are yellow with grey, lateral streaks on femora I and grey fringes around all the joints.
Distribution: Lechia is known only from Vietnam. Murphy & Murphy 2000: 293. By courtesy of the Authors' and the Malaysian Nature Society.
