Oxycheila thanatus sp. nov. (Coleoptera, Carabidae) is described, based on specimens collected near a waterfall in the National Park of Caparaó, a Conservation Unit of Atlantic Forest in Southeast Brazil. This new species is most similar to Oxycheila germaini Fleutiaux, 1893, but has a triangular labrum which is wider than long, the elytral punctation is subseriate and the humeral calli is comparatively less developed. A modified couplet of the available taxonomic key to Oxycheila species is provided to include O. thanatus.
