Abstract

Lacuniola Park, n. gen. and Crinellus Park, n. gen. from New Guinea are described and illustrated. Lacuniola is distinguished from its putative relatives by the basal part of the male antenna with an unusual, elliptical swelling forming a deep concavity on the mesal surface, two long rows of androconial scales in the discal cell of the male hind wing, and a concave termen in the male hind wing. Crinellus is distinguished by the specialized labial palpus with segment II having hairlike rough scales ventro-apically and segment III rodlike, a long row of androconial scales in the discal cell of the male hind wing, and the unique structure of the male genitalia. Adults, labial palpi, wing venation, and male genitalia are illustrated.
