Abstract

Four new species of ricinuleids are described: Pseudocellus chankin from caves and surface collections in southern Mexico (Chiapas & Tabasco) and Guatemala (Petén); Pseudocellus jarocho from a single surface collection in Veracruz, México; Pseudocellus oztotl, a troglobitic and troglomorphic species from Cueva de Las Tres Quimeras in the Sierra Negra, Puebla, Mexico; and Pseudocellus platnicki, also troglobitic and troglomorphic, known from a single cave in Coahuila, Mexico. The number of known species in the genus increases to 24, and Mexican species to 14. An identification key for adult males of the species found in Mexico and southern USA is provided.
