Abstract

Two new species of Torodora (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera, Gelechioidea, Lecithoceridae) are described from Taiwan, i.e., T. meifengensis Park, sp. nov., and T. parasciadosa Park, sp. nov., and two additional species are reported from Taiwan for the first time, i.e., T. frustrans (Diakonoff, 1952) and T. flavescens Gozmány, 1978. The female of T. frustrans, described from males collected in Myanmar, is described and illustrated for the first time. Adults, labial palpi, venation, genitalia, and abdominal tergites of the species are illustrated.
