Abstract

Hoplopyga antilliana Ratcliffe, new species, is described from Grenada and Union Island in the Lesser Antilles. It resembles Hoplopyga liturata (Olivier) from Central and South America and is distinguished from that species. Species of Hoplopyga Thomson are known from Mexico to Argentina, but this species represents the first known occurrence for the genus in the West Indies.
