Three genera of the subfamily Doryctinae Foerster, 1862 (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) are treated and keyed: Ptesimogaster Marsh, 1965, Caingangia Marsh, 1993, and Leptodoryctes Barbalho & Penteado-Dias, 1999. The latter genus is characterised by the presence of an apical setal comb on the hind tibia. Two new genera are described: Ptesimogastroides gen. nov. (type species: P. cerdai spec. nov. from French Guiana and Brazil) and Dicarinoryctes gen. nov. (type species: D. apicalis spec. nov. from French Guiana). A further three new species are described: Caingangia delicata spec. nov. from French Guiana, Leptodoryctes barbalhoae spec. nov. from French Guiana, and Ptesimogaster lemkoi spec. nov.b from Brazil. Pseudorhoptrocentrus platyfemur (Marsh, 1993) is a new combination.
