A new subgenus, Xysterophora, is introduced for the albisecta species group of the genus Cyphura Warren, 1902 (Lepidoptera: Uraniidae). Two new species are described: Cyphura (Xysterophora) devosi and C.(X). femkeae. The subspecies Cyphura atramentaria extensa Rothschild, 1915 is raised to species level. New combinations are formed for the species albisecta Warren, 1907, atramentaria Warren, 1907, extensa Rothschild, 1915, semialba Warren, 1907, and urapteroides Joicey & Talbot, 1917. Lectotypes are designated for the species albisecta, atramentaria, semialba, and urapteroides. Xysterophora is restricted to New Guinea.
