The diagnosis of Nardoa (Andora) A. M. Clark is expanded and this subgenus of Nardoa is elevated to generic rank. Two new subgenera of Andora and three new species are described, extending the distribution of the genus from the Arabian Sea to the Mozambique Channel, Heron Island (east coast of Australia) and the Philippine Islands.
