Abstract
    In his 1991 revision of the genus, Borowiec mentioned nine Vietnamese species of Spermophagus. No addition to his list has been made since. Convolvulaceae and Malvaceae seed samples collected in the southern part of the country yielded seven Spermophagus species. Among these, three are new to science (S. cornutus, S. insularis and S. voarum). One further species (S. titivilitius Boh.) has never been reported from Vietnam. The number of Vietnamese Spermophagus species now amounts to 13, and the larval food plants of nine of them are identified.
