Five species of the genus Iotonchus (Cobb, 1916) Altherr, 1950, viz. Iotonchus arcuatus, I. candelabri, I. paracutus, I. pusillus and I. singaporensis, were recorded for the first time in Vietnam. All newly recorded species were also redescribed and illustrated, these species are recorded from Cat Ba and Bidoup-Nui Ba National Parks.
