Abstract

Two new species of hawk moths from Fiji and Samoa, respectively Gnathothlibus fijiensis n.sp., and G. samoaensis n.sp., are described and figured, and distinguished from G. vanuatuensis Lachlan & Moulds, G. saccoi Lachlan & Moulds and G. eras (Boisduval). A new species of Theretra, T. tabubilensis n.sp. from Papua New Guinea is described and figured. The new species is distinguished from the sympatric T. indistincta papuensis Joicey & Talbot and Theretra clotho celata (Butler), and the lectotype of T. i. papuensis is designated.
