Abstract

Leptochromus laselva Lord, Carlton, and Leschen, new species, from Costa Rica is described. Collecting techniques and natural history data are given. Among the five currently described species, this species is most similar to Leptochromus agilis (Sharp), but possesses a much longer postgenal process and differs in the shapes of the aedeagal parameres and median lobe. An amended key is presented to accommodate L. laselva.
