A new genus and species, Cyptoxenus sigillatus, is described from Jamaica, West Indies. The genus has no close relatives in the New World. The new genus and species described below is a member of the tribe Araecerini as defined by Valentine (1960, 1979). The antennae are inserted adjacent to the eyes on the dorsal base of the short beak; the eyes are rounded, not closest together dorsally, and protrude sufficiently to prevent retraction of the head into the prothorax.
