Species of Braggia Gillette and Palmer (Hemiptera: Aphididae: Aphidinae: Aphidini) feed on various buckwheat, Eriogonum Michx. (Polygonaceae), species in western North America. Two new species, Braggia columbiana Pike n. sp. from Washington and Oregon and Braggia longicauda Pike n. sp. from Washington, Oregon, and northern California, are proposed. Descriptions, diagnoses, illustrations, mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 "barcode" sequences, a key to the species of Braggia, and notes on biology, distribution, and parasitoid associations are provided.

Keywords: Braggia, Hemiptera, Aphididae, buckwheat, Eriogonum Michx.
