A revision of the genus Tapeinidium (C.Presl) C.Chr. in Thailand is presented based on herbarium specimens and field surveys. Two species are recognized, namely Tapeinidium luzonicum (Hook.) K.U.Kramer and T. pinnatum (Cav.) C.Chr. A key to species, descriptions, photographs and conservation assessments are provided. In addition, issues with the previous lectotypifications of Davallia luzonicum Hook. and D. pinnata Cav. are resolved.
