Résumé / Abstract

Bucculatricidae) reared from Cordia (Boraginaceae). - Two new species of Bucculatrix, each initially mining and later externally skeletonizing the leaves of two different Neotropical species of Cordia (Boraginaceae), are described and illustrated. Bucculatrix caribbea Davis & Landry, sp. n. was reared from the leaves of Cordia sebestena L. on Glovers Reef, Belize and Cozumel, Mexico. The biology of this species is briefly summarized and all primary stages, except that of the egg, are illustrated. The adult of Bucculatrix cordiaella Davis & Landry, sp. n. is described from six islands of the Galápagos archipelago. This represents the first record for Bucculatricidae from the Galápagos. The larva feeds on the leaves of Cordia lutea Lam. Both species are morphologically allied to Bucculatrix ilecella Busck, a leaf miner on Ilex sp. from southern Texas, USA.
