Neoclypeodytes moroni Arce-Pérez and Novelo-Gutiérrez, new species, is described and illustrated. Neoclypeodytes moroni is characterized by a total body length of 2.5 mm; frontal region of the head with two rows of fine punctures; clypeus elongate, trapezoidal, and fissured, its margins raised and apex slightly rounded and smooth; metacoxal length/ width ratio 3.55–3.87; elytra without sutural stria; and male genitalia with the median lobe strongly convergent in the apical third, ending in a rounded tip. By the shape of the clypeus and the large metacoxal ratio, N. moroni is considered closely related to Neoclypeodytes anasinus Miller. Both species share the characteristic in which the clypeus is projected and trapezoidal, which is unlike all other species of Neoclypeodytes Young known to date. Neoclypeodytes haroldi Miller is reported from Veracruz, Mexico for the first time.
