Abstract: Two new genera of pygmy grasshoppers belonging to the subfamily Batrachideinae (Orthoptera: Tetrigidae) are described from Central America, each including a single new flight- less species. Naskreckiana kosemeni Kasalo, Buzzetti & Skejo gen. & sp. nov. is described from Costa Rica, Procellator kai Kasalo, Skejo & Cambra gen. & sp. nov. is described from Panama. Facts suggesting that †Eotetrix Gorochov, 2012, stat. restit., is not a synonym of Tettigidea Scudder, 1862 are discussed. The dichotomous key to Batrachideini by Silva et al. (2021) is updated with the inclusion of these two new genera. Currently, the tribe Batrachideini includes 14 extant genera and 61 extant species. Se describen dos géneros nuevos de saltamontes pigmeos (Orthoptera: Tetrigidae: Batrachideini: Batrachideinae) de América Central. Cada género nuevo contiene una especie nueva sin alas. Naskreckiana kosemeni Kasalo, Buzzetti & Skejo gen. & sp. nov. es descrito de Costa Rica, mientras que Procellator kai Kasalo, Skejo & Cambra gen. & sp. nov. es descrita de Panamá. Discutimos y sugerimos que †Eotetrix Gorochov, 2012, stat. restit., no es un sinónimo de Tettigidea Scudder, 1862. Una clave dicotómica para la identificación de géneros de Batrachideini por Silva et al. (2021) es actualizada con la inclusión de dos géneros nuevos. En la actualidad, la tribu Batrachideini incluye 14 géneros y 61 especies no extintas.
