ABSTRACT. Anomala dichromiceps and A. lamdongica spp.n. are described from Dalat Highlands, Central Vietnam. These new species are highly similar to each other but differ in the male coloration and genitalia, and in the sizes of the females. The new synonymy, Anomala Samouelle, 1819 = Pseudosinghala Heller, 1891 syn.n., is proposed, and the new combinations, A. vorstmanni (Heller, 1891) and A. dalmanni (Gyllenhal, 1817), are established. All these species are classified within “dalmanni”-group, but can be easily distinguished in shape of their aedeagi; a key for their identification is given. The ecology of the new species is briefly described.
