Recent collections from New Mexico and western Texas yielded striking specimens of the genus Brachys Dejean with largely blue elytra and subapical coppery patches with coppery setae. Two superficially similar species are also known from single specimens collected in Mexico. This study describes the three as Brachys rileyi Hespenheide, new species, Brachys barri Hespenheide, new species, and Brachys consimilis Hespenheide new species.
