E. trilobus (Fabricius). Of these, E. dantici violaceipennis and E. nipanicus nipanicus were newly recorded for Vietnam. Keys to species and subspecies are presented and records of their distribution in Northern Vietnam are also provided. This is the first result on the taxonomy of genus Euodynerus in Vietnam and the distribution records is an important contribution to the study on the distribution pattern of the species in genus in Asia.
