Subdungeons are smaller versions of a level dungeon. They usually contain some sort of power up hidden behind a puzzle or an enemy. Some subdungeons provide quest chain advancement instead of a powerup, these subdungeons will be not appear anymore once you have advanced the quest chain.

Non-repeatable Subdungeons

These subdungeons may appear instead of the regular Subdungeon. However, they each only do so until completed once. Completing these subdungeons normally unlocks some game element (Race, Altar, Class or other progression).

Repeatable Regular Subdungeons

These are the regular subdungeons that spawn on most maps. Most subdungeons are tied to a specific region (North/West/South/East/Central), and can only appear there. Some subdungeons seem to appear more often than others, which suggests that they also have a set rarity weight. Regular subdungeons always have their entrances spawn on accessible tiles (i.e. on corridors / in chambers).
