Abstract

Rhypasma Pascoe, 1862 is transferred from the tribe Stenosini (Pimeliinae) to Belopini (Lagriinae). Caribanosis gen. nov. is described and placed in Stenosini (Tenebrionidae: Pimeliinae) to hold Rhypasma quisqueyanus Garrido et Varela, 2011. The following new combination is established: Caribanosis quisqueyanus (Garrido et Varela, 2011), comb. nov. Caribanosis is similar to the South American genus Grammicus Waterhouse, 1845 but differs in having a single central pronotal keel, not two lateral keels as in Grammicus. Both are members of the subtribe Stenosina.
