In the course of two field trips to Northern Vietnam during March 2012 and June 2014 the dragonflies and damselflies of three National Parks (Cuc Phuong, Tam Dao, and Ba Be) and one Biodiversity Station (Melinh) were sampled. A total of 90 species of odonates in 60 genera and 15 families was recorded, including two new records for Vietnam: Macromia katae (Macromiidae) and Indothemis carnatica (Libellulidae). Diagnostic illustrations for these two species are provided, as well as the listing of the species recorded from the surveyed areas.
