Abstract

Two new species of Myodocha, Myodocha parcicoma Cervantes and Myodocha unispinopilosa Cervantes, are described from Mexico and South America. A key to the 10 known species and new geographic records for the genus are provided. Species in this genus can be separated into two groups by the presence or absence of hairs on the neck region; other characters used to differentiate the species are length of rostrum, presence of tibial spines on forelegs in males; and shape and number of spines on forefemora of males and females. The last two characters (i.e., shape and number of spines on forefemora), although variable, show diverse patterns.
