The Old World ant cricket Myrmecophilus americanus Saussure, 1877 is reported for the first time from Nuevo Leon state, Mexico. The crickets were found living with their obligate host, the Old World ant, Paratrechina longicornis (Latreille, 1802). The list of known ant hosts of native New World Myrmecophilus species is updated.
