Two new species of moth flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) of the genera Parajungiella Vaillant, 1972, and Clytocerus Eaton, 1904, Parajungiella bohdanecensis sp. nov. and Clytocerus (Boreoclytocerus) splendidus sp. nov., are described from the Czech Republic and all important male diagnostic characters are figured. Althogeter 29 genera and 66 species of moth flies (mainly Psychodinae, with only one genus and three species of Sycoracinae) are recorded from 145 localities in the Orlické hory Mts. and adjacent areas of eastern Bohemia and north-western Moravia. Distribution of some species and the conservation value of moth flies for the Orlické hory Protected Landscape Area is discussed. Clytocerus (Boreoclytocerus) longicorniculatus Krek, 1987, is recorded as new for the Czech Republic, based on specimens from southern Bohemia. The number of species of moth flies known to occur in Bohemia, Moravia and the Czech Republic rise to 130, 124 and 151, respectively.
