Abstract

Omaspides augusta group is revised. Omaspides augusta Boheman, 1856, O. bivittata Baly, 1872, and O. tenuicula Boheman, 1862 are redescribed. Two species are described as new: O. confusa sp. nov. (Ecuador) and O. picaflorensis sp. nov. (Peru). Two genera of Convolvulaceae plants, Merremia Dennst. ex Endl. and Turbina Raf., are recorded as hosts for the genus Omaspides Chevrolat, 1836 for the first time.
