[Thaicythere srisumonae n. gen., n. sp. is described from Thailand. This is the first published record of Timiriaseviinae from Southeast Asia and it brings the extant timiriaseviinids to 51 species in 8 genera. The chorology of this subfamily is briefly discussed. Phylogenetic analyses, based on morphological characters of valves and soft parts, are carried out to evaluate systematic relationships within this subfamily. Both Maximum Parsimony (MP) and Neighbour Joining (NJ) trees show that Thaicythere n. gen. is closely related to Metacypris, but relationships amongst other genera remain unresolved. Additionally, the previously proposed relationship between Afrocythere and Elpidium is not supported by our results. Thaicythere srisumonae n. gen., n. sp. est décrit de Thaïlande. C'est le premier Timiriaseviinae signalé d'Asie du sud-est, et il porte le nombre des Timiriaseviinae aujourd'hui connus à 51 espèces réparties en 8 genres. La chorologie de cette sous-famille est brièvement discutée. Des analyses phylogénétiques, fondées sur les caractères morphologiques des valves et des parties molles, ont été réalisées pour évaluer les relations systématiques au sein de la sous-famille. Les arbres obtenus par maximum de parcimonie (MP) et par «Neighbour Joining» montrent que Thaicythere n. gen. est proche de Metacypris, mais les relations entre les autres genres restent non résolus. De plus, la relation proposée antérieurement entre Afrocythere et Elpidium n'est pas soutenue par nos résultats., Thaicythere srisumonae n. gen., n. sp. is described from Thailand.
