We describe eight new species of the sisorid catfish genus Oreoglanis from the Chao Phraya, Mekong and Salween river drainages in northern and western Thailand. The new species are diagnosed by a combination of morphology of maxillary-barbel tip, lower-lip morphology, extent of pectoral fin, fusion of the adipose fin with the upper procurrent caudal-fin rays, caudal-fin morphology, and the relative proportions of the head, snout, nasal barbel, interorbital distance, eye, body depth at anus, adipose fin, caudal peduncle and post-adipose distance. The taxonomy of O. pumatensis, a poorly known species from Vietnam is also discussed; it is considered a junior subjective synonym of O. infulatus here.
