Abstract

Two Central American species of the genus Aglyptinus Cockerell, A. tumerus and A. phymaphorus, are described as new species. They are notable for unusual asymmetrical expansion of stem antennomeres and presence of conspicuous spectral iridescence on the elytra of males. Probable utility of this unusual sexual dimorphism is discussed.
