Abstract
We describe two new species of Nepticulidae (Lepidoptera) from the Western Hemisphere that feed on Fabaceae: Stigmella mimosae Diškus and Stonis, new species, on Mimosa albida Willd. (Caesalpinioideae), and Acalyptris minimus Diškus and Stonis, new species, on Centrolobium ochroxylum Rose ex Rudd. (Faboideae). Centrolobium ochroxylum is an economically important tree in South America that is exported for timber. The new species are illustrated with photographs of the adults, genitalia, and the leaf mines.
