Abstract: Chloropepla paveli sp. nov. and C. stysi sp. nov., from Brazil are described,
based on the morphology of genitalia for both sexes. Prior to this study, the
genus was represented in Amazon region as well as in southern and southeastern
Brazil. The addition of the two species described in this paper extends the
known geographical distribution to northeastern and central areas of Brazil.
A key to the species of Chloropepla is presented.
