The genus Flavopimpla Betrem, 1932 is reviewed for the first time from Vietnam with descriptions of two new species: Flavopimpla lanugo sp. n. from Xuan Son National Park, Phu Tho Province, northern Vietnam and Flavopimpla vinhcuuensis sp. n. from Phu Ly, Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam. A key to three Vietnamese Flavopimpla species is compiled.
