AbstractTwo new species of Candalides Hübner, 1819, in the absimilis Felder, 1862, species group, from mainland New Guinea, are described and figured: Candalides brabyi n. sp. (Upper Sepik, Papua New Guinea, and Papua, Indonesia) and Candalides skotadi n. sp. (Trans Fly, Papua New Guinea). Adults of both sexes are illustrated, as are the male genitalia, with C. brabyi compared to the related C. limbata (Tite, 1963) and C. skotadi to C. ardosiacea (Tite, 1963) and C. margarita (Semper, 1879).
