Six new species of the genus Orestes Redtenbacher, 1906, O. bachmaensis sp. nov., O. botot sp. nov., O. diabolicus sp. nov., O. dittmari sp. nov., O. draegeri sp. nov. and O. krijnsi sp. nov. are described and figured from Vietnam. Descriptions are based on both sexes, except for O. diabolicus sp. nov., of which only the male is known. The type species O. mouhotii (Bates, 1865) is redescribed and its distribution range is extended. Dares (Dares) subcylindricus Redtenbacher, 1906 is removed from the synonymy with Orestes mouhotii (Bates,1865), transferred to Orestes and redescribed from both sexes and eggs. The new combination Orestes subcylindricus Redtenbacher, 1906 stat. rev., comb. nov. is proposed. The generic description of Orestes is slightly improved and the delimitation from Pylaemenes Stål, 1875 is precised. A plate of the type species of Pylaemenes, P. coronatus (Haan, 1842) is presented for comparison. Pylaemenes guangxiensis Bi & Li, 1994, P. japonicus Ho, 2016 and P. shirakii Ho & Brock, 2013 are transferred to Orestes and the new combinations O. guangxiensis (Bi & Li, 1994) comb. nov., O. japonicus (Ho, 2016) comb. nov. and O. shirakii (Ho & Brock, 2013) comb. nov. are proposed. The cephalic armature is discussed and figured. A key to the species of Orestes from Vietnam and Cambodia is presented with accompanying plates, as well as a distribution map and live in nature pictures.
