Two new species of the genus Torodora Meyrick, T. bacillaris M. Wang and Xiong sp. nov. and T. styloidea H. Wang and M. Wang sp. nov. are described, illustrated and compared with their related species, T. galera and T. pseudogalera. T. bacillaris sp. nov. is characterized by juxta with a pair of long, heavily sclerotized lateral lobes; cucullus with somewhat convex outer margin, and not triangular; cornuti consisting of a long row of spicules. T. styloidea sp. nov. is distinguished from its congeners by lateral lobes of juxta long, strongly sclerotized, and expanded apically; sacculus with a U-shaped concavity before cucullus; vesica with numerous spicules.
