Indocryphalus suongmusp. n. was described from northern Vietnam. A cladistic analysis of all nine species based on 22 morphological characters found I. suongmuand I. machiliWood as sister species. Species relationships, character evolution and patterns of ecology/geography were discussed in context of the cladogram. A modification of Beaver’s (2000) key was presented to accommodate I. suongmuand I. machili. A new country record was reported for I. sordidus(Blandford).
