Culcua is characterized as a well separated genus of the subfamily Pachygastrinae. In addition to the haired eyes and the unusually short vein R2+3, a new autapomorphic character (an additional tube in the phallic complex) is defined. Only two valid species were previously recognized, both distributed exclusively in the Oriental Region. Our revisional study of material from several institutions resulted in the description of 7 new species and one resurrection from synonymy. Culcua argentea sp.n. is described from Laos, C. chaineyi sp.n. from Malaysia, C. fasciata sp.n. from the Philippines, C. kolibaci from Laos, Malaysia and Thailand, C. kovaci sp.n. from Laos and Thailand, C. normani sp.n. from East Malaysia and C. ornans from India. C. albopilosa (Matsumura) from Taiwan is considered to be distinct from the type species of the genus, C. simulans Walker, being distributed in Malaysia. C. nigra Brunetti described from Laos is also recorded from Thailand. Two new species are documented by colour illustrations, three additional species by colour photographs and figures of diagnostic characters of all the treated species are included. An identification key to the all known species of Culcua is added.
