Abstract: Barcoding of Dutch specimens of Lemonia dumi (Linnaeus, 1761) (Lepidoptera: Brahmaeidae) and a study of a large collection material of this species resulted in discovery of a new, hitherto undescribed species Lemonia batavorum sp. nov. Based on comparison with L. dumi, species level of L. batavorum sp. nov. is supported by the differences in its external appearance, diff erences in genitalia of both sexes and by 1.92% p-distance to L. dumi as the nearest neighbour. Photographs of specimens and genitalia of both sexes are given.
