Abstract

Archicorynus Anderson and Marvaldi, new genus, and its type species, Archicorynus kuscheli Anderson and Marvaldi, new species, are described from Reserva Natural Cerro Musún, Nicaragua. Adults were collected from small dead twigs. A cladistic analysis of 71 adult morphological and three biological characters identified Archicorynus as the sister group to all remaining extant Oxycoryninae, necessitating recognition of a new tribe, Archicorynini Anderson and Marvaldi.
