The chedimine genus Boagrius Simon, 1893 (including only two species), is reviewed. The genus and its type species B. pumilus Simon, 1893, are rediagnosed and redescribed; the male of this species is described for the first time. The range of the genus is reconsidered as restricted only to South-Eastern Asia. Based on the structure of both the male palp and somatic characters, East African B. incisus Tullgren, 1910, is transferred to Scelidocteus Simon, 1907, as S. incisus (Tullgren, 1910), new combination. Additionally, B. simoni, new species, is described from the north-eastern part of Borneo.
