Abstract: The Ecuadorian Metopiinae fauna currently includes 17 species, but recent intensive samplings carried out at Southern Ecuador have increased this number. In the present paper, two new species, Exochus tapiarum sp. nov. and Leurus tapichalacae sp. nov., are described and illustrated. Furthermore, four new records of Metopiinae from Ecuador are provided: Colpotrochia beluga Gauld & Sithole, Exochus famellus Gauld & Sithole, E. izbus Gauld & Sithole, and E. ravetus Gauld & Sithole.
Sponsor: This research was supported by the Prometeo Project of Secretaría de Educación Superior, Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación from Ecuador, and the projects DI-10-FARNR (2017–2019), 19-DI-FARNR-2019, and 08-DI-FARNR-2021 from Universidad Nacional de Loja, Ecuador. Furthermore, layer photographs and revisions of holotypes were done during a research visit made by the first author to the Natural History Museum of London (UK), supported by a Synthesys grant (GB-TAF-TA3-028).
