Two species, Carineta bidigitata sp. nov. and Herrera aurenigrapilosa sp. nov., of Neotropical cicadas from Carinetini Distant, 1905 are described as new. The species are illustrated and detailed comparisons to the cogeneric Bolivian species are made to facilitate identification of Bolivian specimens.
