Two new species, Pangrapta paralasiophora sp. nov. and Pangrapta neorecusata sp. nov., are described from South China. Each of them is superficially similar to Pangrapta lasiophora (Hampson, 1926) and Pangrapta recusata (Walker, 1859), but they can easily be distinguished by their genitalia. Illustrations of external features and genitalia are provided.

Cada uno de ellas está cerca de Pangrapta lasiophora (Hampson, 1926) y Pangrapta recusata (Walker, 1859), pero se pueden distinguir fácilmente por la morfologia de sus genitales. Se proveen ilustraciones de las características externas y los órganos genitales.
