Two new species of Compsolechia Meyrick (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae), C. camilotus Adamski and C. vittatiella Adamski, are described from dry-forests in western Mexico. Larvae of both species were collected on leaves of Casearia nitida (L.) Jacq. (Flacourtiaceae), a new host record for the genus. Photographs of larvae and their shelters and adult moths are provided. In addition, illustrations of the male and female genitalia of the adults, larval chaetotaxal maps, and scanning electron micrographs for both species are included. The pupa of only C. camilotus was available for description.
