ABSTRACT. A new tersilochine species, Aneuclis aenigmatica Khalaim et Ruíz-Cancino, sp.n., is described from the State of Jalisco in Southwestern Mexico. In spite of the fact that the species is represented by a single poorly preserved male without antennae, it is immediately distinguished from all North American congeners by the head lacking occipital carina dorsally, infumate with brown wings and very short metacarpus.

KEY WORDS: Jalisco, Nearctic region, North America, new species, taxonomy.
