Seven new species of Notharinia Vermeulen, Phung et Truong, 2007 (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Diplommatinidae; formerly included in Pupinidae) are described from limestone hills on the east flank of the Mekong Delta, in Vietnam and Cambodia. A map showing the distribution of all ten species now known from the area is presented. In addition, Plectostoma haplohelix Vermeulen, Luu, Keum et Anker, 2019, is synonymised with P. lavillei (Dautzenberg et Fischer, 1905).
