Two species, Macrosemia assamensis (Distant, 1905) and Macrosemia divergens (Distant, 1917), are removed from the Vietnam cicada fauna. Information on the distribution of all known species is given. Photos of the adult, illustrations of the male genitalia and a distribution map are provided for the new species.
