Abstract

A new genus, Pseudodicranocentrus, is erected for two species (circulatus and christianseni) previously described and placed by the author in the genus Dicranocentrus. The new genus is similar to the latter but differs by the presence of head setae A1, Ps, bifurcated prelabral setae, and circularly arranged compound spines on the dental lobe. D. biseriatus n. sp. from Haiti and D. antillensis jamaicensis n. ssp. from Jamaica are described. D. millsi cubensis Mari Mutt 1979 is synonymized to the nominal form. Details are added to the descriptions of the following neotropical Dicranocentrus: antillensis, colombiensis, marias, millsi, nigritus, platensis and schoetti.
