Two new species are described in the monophyletic Ectoedemia (Fomoria) weaveri group: E. (F.) festivitatis spec. nov. from mountains in Nepal, China (Yunnan) and northern Vietnam, feeding on shrubby Hypericum species, and E. (F.) degeeri spec. nov. from Turkey, food plant unknown. The species group is briefly reviewed and a checklist with information on distribution and food plants is provided; the weaveri group comprises 14 species. E. ruwenzoriensis (Bradley, 1965) comb. nov. is added to the group. E. hypericella (Kuroko, 1982) and E. permira (Puplesis, 1984) are recorded for the first time from China and Hypericum is confirmed as food plant for the latter. The reported occurrence of the Canarian endemic E. variicapitella (Chrétien, 1908) outside the Canary Islands is based on an error.
