Morphology, bionomy and geographic distribution of the newly recorded species are presented. The diagnostic characteristics for each species are discussed with its closest relative. An annotated checklist of the genera Agrochola Hübner, [1821] and Polymixis Hübner, [1820] is presented. Adult and genitalia of two newly reported species are illustrated.
