          Abstract

          Two new species of Metapocyrtus Heller, 1912, subgenus Orthocyrtus Heller, 1912 ( Coleoptera , Curculionidae , Entiminae , Pachyrhynchini ) are described and illustrated from Mindanao Island, Philippines. The species are Metapocyrtus ( Orthocyrtus) davaoensis sp. nov. and Metapocyrtus ( Orthocyrtus) hirakui sp. nov. from Davao City and Bukidnon, respectively. Brief bionomical notes and phenotypic characters compared to their sympatric Entiminae counterparts are also reported. The discovery of M. ( O.) davaoensis sp. nov. in Davao City confirms how understudied Coleoptera are in Mindanao and underlines the potential for the discovery of new species even in highly urbanized areas.
