Two new species of Phylinae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae) are described from the Canary Islands. Their habitus, several characters of external morphology and genitalia are illustrated. Systellonotus stysi sp. nov., belonging to the tribe Hallodapini, is well recognized by its scutellar hump and some other myrmecomorphic characters. Atomoscelis pictifrons sp. nov. of the tribe Phylini is easily recognized, among other features, by a pair of purple-red spots on the head. Their generic placement and differences to other taxa are discussed.
