ABSTRACT. A total of 51 spider species collected from Vietnam is considered, of which seven are described as new: Araneidae: Argiope abramovi sp.n. (?); Clubionidae: Nusatidia vietnamensis sp.n. (?); Selenopidae: Selenops ab sp.n. (?); Sparassidae: Pseudopoda ohne sp.n. (?), Thelcticopis buu sp.n. (?); Thomisidae: Lysiteles vietnamensis sp.n. (??); Salticidae: Pancorius crinitus sp.n. (??). The genus Lechia ?abka, 1985 is synonymized with Laufeia Simon, 1889 (Salticidae). A new species synonymy is established: Pseudopoda houaphan Jäger, 2007 with P. namkhan Jäger, Pathoumthong et Vedel, 2006 (Sparassidae). A new combination is proposed: Laufeia squamata (?abka, 1985), comb.n., ex Lechia (Salticidae). Unknown sexes are described for two species: Laufeia squamata (?abka, 1985) (?), Ptocasius weyersi Simon, 1885 (?) (Salticidae). The following 16 species are reported for the spider fauna of Vietnam for the first time: Theridiidae: Phycosoma sinica (Zhu, 1992), Steatoda cingulata (Thorell, 1890); Tetragnathidae: Leucauge tessellata (Thorell, 1887), Orsinome vethi (Hasselt, 1842), Tetragnatha geniculata Karsch, 1892; Araneidae: Argiope jinghongensis Yin, Peng et Wang, 1994, Macracantha arcuata (Fabricius, 1793); Sparassidae: Pseudopoda namkhan Jäger, Pathoumthong et Vedel, 2006; Thomisidae: Lysiteles conicus Tang, Yin, Peng, Ubick et Griswold, 2007, L. dentatus Tang, Yin, Peng, Ubick et Griswold, 2007, L. punctiger Ono, 2001, L. torsivus Zhang, Zhu et Tso, 2006, Xysticus croceus Fox, 1937; Salticidae: Portia fimbriata (Doleschall, 1859), P. labiata (Thorell, 1887), Ptocasius weyersi Simon, 1885.
