The study of a collection of Dromiidae collected around Madagascar and the Seychelles Islands, together with a new examination of the specimens of this family of western Indian Ocean or of the Red Sea origin, deposited in the Museum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris, allow to list nineteen species, of which three, Dromidiopsis dubia, D. plumosa and Conchoecetes intermedia, are new. Ten out of the nineteen identified species have a vast Indo-West-Pacific distribution, six appear as restricted to the Indian Ocean, and seven inhabit the Red Sea. Petalomera nodosa Sakai, 1936 was considered as endemic from Japan, but is here mentioned from Madagascar. Four specimens of Sphaerodromia nux Alcock, 1899, previously known from two syntypes only, have been collected in Madagascar, and the species is redescribed.
