PROC. ENTOMOL. SOC. WASH. 85(1), 1983, pp. 59-63 TWO NEW SPECIES OF PYRALIDAE (LEPIDOPTERA) FROM TEXAS Andre Blanchard and Edward C. Knudson (AB) 3023 Underwood, Houston, Texas 77025; (ECK) 804 Woodstock, Bellaire, Texas 77401. Abstract.— Two new moths of the family Pyralidae are described from Texas, Petwphila heppneri (subfamily Nymphulinae) and Eoreuma arenella (subfamily Crambinae). The imagines and male and female genitalia are figured. The first species described below, Petwphila heppneri, was taken first by the senior author and recognized as new following the publication of the MONA fascicle on the Nymphulinae by Munroe (1972). The junior author later obtained a series of this insect, and still later, received a reprint from Heppner, which indicated that he had previously taken this species in Texas. Heppner (1976), recognized his specimens as new, but had only female examples. The second species, Eoreuma arenella, is described from a series taken by the senior author on North Padre Island, Texas.
