Abstract: Recent collections of Osoriinae from Cuba revealed three new species,
Allotrochus cubensis sp. nov., Thoracophorus cubensis sp. nov., and
Antillosorius martini sp. nov. In total, 34 species of Osoriinae are currently
known from this island including the three new ones. An identification key to
the species and a list of species with all records known to me are provided.
According to this study 8 species (21 %) out of the 39 species are endemic
for Cuba and 4 (11 %) show a pantropical distribution.
