The present study is based on oribatid mite material (Acari, Oribatida) collected from the city of Hanoi in Northern Vietnam. A list of identified taxa, including 68 species from 49 genera and 32 families, is presented; of these, ten species (Trhypochthonius japonicus, Nothrus oblongus, Hermanniella aliverdievae, Arthrodamaeus decemsetiger, Arcoppia fenestralis orientalis, Ramusella puertomonttensis, Allosuctobelba grandis, Scheloribates elegans, Neoribates gracilis, Pergalumna corniculata) and one genus (Trhypochthonius) are recorded in the Vietnamese fauna for the first time; seven species (Xenillus selgae, Arcoppia curtipila, Cycloppia granulata, Hammerella gracilis, Allosuctobelba tricuspidata, Ceratozetoides maximus, Protoribates hakonensis) and one genus (Ceratozetoides) are recorded in the Oriental region for the first time. Two new species belonging to the genera Allosuctobelba and Oribatella are described: Allosuctobelba alexanderkhaustovi sp. nov. differs from Allosuctobelba tricuspidata tricuspidata Aoki, 1984 in the rostrum having three to four lateral teeth and very long notogastral setae positioned in two parallel rows; Oribatella pavelklimovi sp. nov. differs from Oribatella kunsti Bernini, 1972 by the granulate body surface, setiform aggenital setae and the dorsolateral position of notogastral setae lm and lp.
