Resumen:
We summarize the information about the Brachistosternus scorpions from Chile, providing diagnosis and an illustrated key for all the species, and actualizing the distributions with additional records and maps. Two new species, Brachistosternus (Leptosternus) chango n. sp. and Brachistosternus (Leptosternus) kamanchaca n. sp., are described from northern Chile. The phylogenetic affinities of Br. chango n. sp. are unclear. Some characters suggest that this species may be related to Brachistosternus (L.) artigasi Cekalovic, 1974 but others suggest that it may be related to Brachistosternus (L.) roigalsinai Ojanguren Affilastro, 2002. Brachistosternus kamanchaca n. sp., in contrast, appears to be closely related to Brachistosternus (L.) donosoi Cekalovic, 1974 and other species from the plains of northern Chile and southern PerĂº.
