ABSTRACT. A brief review of the genus Calliclytus Fisher, 1932, as well as a key to its species are given. The following new synonymy is established: Calliclytus Fisher, 1932 = Lamproclytus Fisher, 1932, syn.n. A new species, C. wappesi sp.n., is described from the Dominican Republic. It is most similar to C. macoris Lingafelter, 2011, but differs clearly in the almost entirely black coloration of the elytra, the peculiar sculpture of the pro- and mesosternum, the narrower mesosternal process, and some other traits. The following new combination is established: Calliclytus elegans (Fisher, 1932), comb.n. Abundant colour pictures, including the type specimens of all studied species, are presented.

KEY WORDS: Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Tillomorphini, Calliclytus, new synonymy, key to species, new species, Dominican Republic.
