ABSTRACT: Some species of the pyrgine (Hesperridae) "Antigonus" group (sensu Evans 1953) occurring in central Rondonia, Brazil, are discussed. These are six species of Mylon Godman & Salvin, 1894, including two new species Mylon simplex and Mylon argonatutarum; four species of Carrhenes Godman & Salvin, 1895, including the new species Carrhenes recurva; four species of Clito Evans, 1953, including the new combination Clito clada, new status; one species of Xenophanes Godman & Salvin, 1895; three species of Antigonus Huebner [1819]; and one species each of Timochreon Godman & Salvin, 1896, and Anisochoria Mabille [1877]. Taxonomic comments and illustrations (including male and female genitalia) are provided for these and for some related taxa from elsewhere. The identities of Leucochitonea jason Ehrmann, 1907, and Mylon ozema var. exstincta Mabille & Boullet, 1917, are clarified. A lectotype is designated for L. jason. The holotype of M. o. var. exstincta is identified and M. exstincta, new status, is raised from its current synonymy with M. jason. Mylon cristata, new species, is described from Guatemala. Carrhenes chaeremon (Mabille, 1891), revised status; Carrhenes leada (Butler, 1870), revised status; and Carrhenes lilloi Hayward, 1947, revised status, are raised to specific level taxa from their current subspecific or synonymic placements.
