Two metallic green species of Pandeleteius Schönherr, 1834, Pandeleteius anneae Anderson and Ivie, new species (type locality: US Virgin Islands, St. Thomas) and Pandeleteius metallicus Anderson and Ivie, new species (type locality: Dominican Republic, Puerto Plata), are described. The two new species are easily distinguishable from other West Indian species in the genus by the metallic green scales, a deeper and more v-shaped epistomal ridge, and less strongly deflexed scrobes. The species are very similar and separable with confidence only on the basis of distribution, body size, and structure of female genitalia (male not known for P. anneae).
