Abstract. Two new lycid genera, Tainopteron gen.n. and Cessator gen.n., and four new species, Leptolycus (s.str.) albicauda, Leptolycus (Baholycus) puellus, Tainopteron milleri and Cessator luquillonis spp.n., are described from Puerto Rico. The subgenus Leptolycus (Baholycus) Bocák, 2001 is reported from Puerto Rico for the first time. Leptolycus heterocornis var. flavicollis Leng et Mutchler, 1922 syn.n., is synonymized with L. heterocornis Leng et Mutchler, 1922. A check-list of Leptolycini of Puerto Rico is provided, as well as identification keys to the genera and species of the tribe registered for the island.
