Abstract: Four new species of Canthysellus Baca & Toledo, 2015, C. kukrutkato sp.
nov., C. putkarot sp. nov., C. omawe sp. nov. and C. yawari sp. nov., from the
Brazilian states of Amazonas and Pará are described and illustrated. The new
species can be recognized from all other members of the genus by their distinct
aedeagal features; Canthysellus omawe sp. nov. and C. yawari sp. nov. differ
furthermore from all other members of the genus by their distinct dorsal surface
punctation and glabrous prosternal process. A geographic distribution map and a
key to all known species of Canthysellus are provided. In addition, new records
from Brazil are provided for C. buqueti (Laporte, 1835) from the states of Minas
Gerais and Pará.
