Abstract: Recent quantitative sampling of sandy beaches in Central America
revealed that species in the sphaeromatid genus Ancinus are abundant and widespread
at low latitudes. Ancinus panamensis n. sp. is described from the Pacific
coasts of Panama and Colombia and compared with A. brasiliensis Lemos de Castro
from the Caribbean coasts of Panama and Costa Rica. The morphology and color
polymorphism of the Panamanian species are illustrated in detail. Study of all
known species in the genus indicated the existence of at least four and probably
five distinct species in the New World. A key to these species is presented.
