Vaz-de-Mello, Fernando ZNunes, Luis Gabriel de Oliveira AlbuquerqueCosta-Silva, Vinícius da

A new species of Canthon is described, illustrated and the morphological similarities with related species are discussed. The species Canthon cleidecostae was named after Dr. Cleide Costa a great beetles specialist. The subgeneric category of species is considered incertae sedis until the taxonomic revision of the genus Canthon is fully addressed. Also, we provide a key for genera, subgenera and isolated species-groups that can be confused with the genus Canthon.(AU)
