The subfamily Ticoplinae is Afrotropical, Oriental and Palaearctic in distribution with six species in two genera (Eosmicromyrmilla Lelej & Krombein, 2001 and Hindustanilla Lelej in Lelej & Krombein, 2001) known from the Oriental Region. Two new species, E. subbuka sp. nov., and E. balakrishnani sp. nov. were recently discovered in India (Western Ghats). Keys to the Old World genera of tribe Smicromyrmillini and species of Eosmicromyrmilla are provided. An updated diagnosis for males of Eosmicromyrmilla and photos of male genitalia for the genus are given. A new combination is proposed for E. margalla (Lelej & Ullah, 2007), comb. nov. The genus Eosmicromyrmilla is newly recorded from the fauna of Pakistan instead of the genus Smicromyrmilla Suárez, 1965, which is excluded from that fauna.
