The tribe Stenosini is composed of small species with pantropical distribution, often associated with ants, rodent nests and soil. In South America it is represented by the genera Grammicus Waterhouse, Ecnomoderes Gebien, Renefouqueosis Aalbu et al., Schizaraeus Kulzer (subtribe Stenosina) and Discopleurus Solier and Hexagonochilus Solier (subtribe Dichillina). Prior to this study, Schizaraeus is monotypic with one species, S. acuticosta from Catamarca, Argentina. In this contribution we describe a new species of Schizaraeus from southern Andes of Peru. SEM photographs for the new species are included, with comparisons to the other known species of these genera. A map including new records of the known species and the new one is presented.
