Recent efforts to discover insect biological control agents of the Brazilian peppertree, Schinus terebinthifolius (Anacardiaceae), include three new genera: Tentamen Metz, new genus, Longistrebula Metz, new genus, and Tectosquamae Metz, new genus; and three new species: Tentamen atrivirgulatum Metz, new species, Longistrebula argalata Metz, new species, and Tectosquamae furvalata Metz, new species, belonging to the subfamily Gelechiinae. Two additional new species, Tectosquamae poguei Metz, new species and Tectosquamae solisae Metz, new species, from Paraguay are also described. We diagnose, describe, and illustrate the new taxa, and propose hypotheses for placement within the subfamily.
