In this second part of a revision of the genus Loboptera Brunner v. W., the Moroccan species are treated. In addition to the 6 species already known (L. alluaudi Chopard, L. decipiens (Germar), L. irregularis Chopard, L. maroccana Bolívar, L. minor Bolivar, L. truncata Chopard), 5 new species and 1 new subspecies are described (L. cuneilobata, L. cryptofoveata, L. foveolata, L. glandulifera, L. ovolobata, L. minor semicirculolobata). Only one of the species (L. decipiens) has a wide distribution; the other species appear to be endemic to Morocco except for L. ovolobata which also reaches into western Algeria. The endemic species (incl. L. ovolobata) form a well defined group of closely related species (the maroccana group). The characteristics of the maroccana group are described. A key for the identification of the Moroccan species is also given.
