Biologically, New Zealand is an important country for its high levels of endemism. However, the recorded fauna of Charipinae in this country included only three cosmopolitan species: Alloxysta fuscicornis (Hartig), Alloxysta victrix (Westwood) and Phaenoglyphis villosa (Hartig). Here, we describe the first endemic charipines for New Zealand: Alloxysta rubidus n. sp. and Alloxysta thorpei n. sp. This significantly increases the knowledge of cynipoid diversity in Australasia, where this hymenopteran group is very poorly known. The new species are diagnosed, described, illustrated and information about their hosts and distribution is given. Characters useful to distinguish these species are discussed. A key and distribution map to all species of New Zealand Charipinae is provided.
