Psilodon buhrnheimi Grossi and Aguiar, new species, is described from Amazonas, Brazil, becoming the third genus of Lucanidae found in this region. The new species is illustrated and compared with the other two Brazilian species of Psilodon Perty from Piauí and Bahia, both in northeastern Brazil. A distributional map of the known species of Lucanidae of the Amazonian region and a key to the stag beetle genera in the region are also presented, as well as biological data for Psilodon and a key to the known species of the genus. The male genitalia is described and illustrated for the first time for a Brazilian species, and comments are made about the correct identity of Psilodon schuberti Perty, 1830.
