Dasymutilla nigra and D. imperialis, two new species of Dasymutilla Ashmead (Hymenoptera: Mutillidae), are described from males only from Texas and California, respectively. The males of both species have the integument and the pubescence entirely black, unlike any previously described species of Dasymutilla. They are easily distinguished from one another by the specific characters. Descriptions are given, including figures of the male genitalia.
