Abstract

Stichotrema carnatus n. sp. is described from Costa Rica. This is the first species in Stichotrema reported from Central America, however this is likely due to lack of collecting rather than a reflection of the actual diversity of this genus in this region. Of the now 47 valid species of Stichotrema, S. carnatus n. sp. becomes only the sixth extant species from the New World. Stichotrema carnatus n. sp. appears morphologically to most closely resemble Stichotrema trilobulatum but differs in several important characters.
