Allodia (Brachycampta) huggerti sp. n. from Sweden and Allodia (Brachycampta) rindeni sp. n. from Norway and Sweden are described based on a few adult males. Detailed illustrations of their terminalia are provided. The A. (B.) barbata species group is defined for species of which both dorsal and ventral branches of the male gonostylus are reduced to slender lobes, and the two new species both belong in this species group. They differ from other species in the species group primarily by the structure of the apicoventral corners of the gonocoxite, by the shape of the hypandrial lobe, and in details of the gonostylus. The new species seem to be most closely related with each other and further to A. (B.) racemosa Zaitzev, 1992 known from Alaska. The new species are named in memory of their collectors, the late dr. Lars Huggert (1942 - 2003) and the late Helge Rinden (1967-1999).
