Sixteen species of scorpionflies have been reported from Vietnam, consisting of 13 Neopanorpa and three Bittacus species. One of these scorpionflies from the Central Highlands of Vietnam with hood-shaped hypovalves was determined to be a new species and is described herein as Neopanorpa cucullata, n.sp. A second new species, Neopanorpa ellengreeni, n. sp., with golden yellow wing membranes and Y-shaped wing markings is described from northern Vietnam. COI DNA analysis of 16 of 17 species of Vietnamese Mecoptera are presented using a neighbor-joining tree indicating that the new species are approximately as distinct from the extant species as the extant species are from each other. A key is provided for all 17 Vietnamese Mecoptera.
