Authors

Lobesia arzilae sp. n. and Willibaldiana culatrae sp. n. (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae: Olethreutinae) found in Portugal are described. The new species were collected respectively in Paúl de Arzila, a nature reserve located in central-west Portugal, close to the city of Coimbra and in Ilha da Culatra, which lies in the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, in the region of Faro, situated in the extreme south of Portugal. L. arzilae differs from other species of the genus Lobesia by male genitalia; socius is lateral, developed extending upwards; sacculus has a group of long spines apically dentate and is armed with strong dorsal thorn. W. culatrae differs from other species of the genus Willibaldiana by genitalia: in male valva is simple, in female cingulum is long and developed. Images of the holotypes and the genitalia are provided.
