Abstract

Badioglobus tapanti, new genus, new species (Hydrophilidae: Sphaeridiinae: Coelostomatini), from Costa Rica is described and illustrated. Badioglobus is distinguished from other genera of Coelostomatini by the short first metatarsal segment, widely spaced gular sutures, distinct notosternal sutures, and its large size. A key to the Central American genera of Coelostomatini is presented.
