Abstract

Simmeiropsis algharbensis sp. n. and S. lusitana sp. n. are described and illustrated. The new species were discovered in the Algarve region in the south of Portugal. The records of these new species confirm the presence of the tribe Peritelini in Portugal and suggest that additional research is needed to explore the diversity and distribution of this group in the central and western parts of the Iberian Peninsula.
