The genus Physopleurella Reuter, 1884 is recorded from Indonesia for the first time, represented by four species, including one new species from eastern Java, Bali, and Flores. They are P. pessoni Carayon, 1956, P. nigrifemora Yamada and Hirowatari, 2007, P. striata Yamada and Hirowatari, 2007, and P. aurantia sp. nov. Physopleurella aurantia sp. nov. differs from other congeners in having the following combination of character states: antennal segment II about as long as the head width across the eyes, the apex of the cuneus narrowly darkened, and the paramere of the male genitalia slender, extending laterally from the pygophore and abruptly curving anteriad in its apical one-third. A revised key to Southeast Asian species of Physopleurella is provided.
