Abstract: Two new species of the genus Mimogonus Fauvel, 1903, M. clavicornis sp. nov. and M. curtus sp. nov., are described from the eastern slope of the Andean range in Ecuador. Three species of Mimogonus Fauvel, 1903 are now known from the Neotropics, including M. fumator (Fauvel, 1889) from the West Indies. Similarities between the two new Mimogonus species and the African species, M. curtipennis Fagel, 1959 and M. fumator (Fauvel, 1889), are discussed. Additionally, three new species of the genus Mimogonia Coiffait, 1978, M. longipes sp. nov., M. amazonica sp. nov. and M. paraensis sp. nov., are described from the Brazilian states of Amazonas and Pará. Including these new species, a total of 17 Mimogonia species is now known from South America. A key to the species group of Mimogonia characterised by large prominent eyes is provided.
