ABSTRACT. The annotated list of 32 species of dobsonflies of subfamilies Corydalinae and Chauliodinae of Eastern Palearctic and Oriental Region from collection of Zoological Institute of Russian Academy of Science is given. Three species, Neoneuromus ignobilis Navás, 1932, Protohermes yunnanensis Yang et Yang, 1988 and Neochauliodes punctatolosus Liu et Yang, 2006, which were earlier known from southern China and northern Vietnam, are recorded in the southern Vietnam for the first time. Moreover, the female of Nevromus testaceus Rambur, 1842 earlier known as the Javanese and Sumatran endemic was caught in March 1995 by A.V. Gorokhov in Vietnam. This record is associated with the random drift of the specimen by the tsunami which was occurred in 1995 in Indonesia. Another specimen of Protohermes sp. from northern Vietnam is the new species and will be describe by Dr. Liu in the separate publication.
