Abstract


The taxonomic structure of the genus Thysanoptyx Hampson, 1894 is discussed, and the genus is subdivided into five species-groups. Two new species, T. indosinica Volynkin & Dubatolov, sp. nov. from Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, and T. mirifica Volynkin & Dubatolov, sp. nov. from Vietnam are described. Adults, male and female genitalia of the new species and their congeners are illustrated. The checklist of the genus Thysanoptyx is presented.
