Doryphoribius quadrituberculatus Kaczmarek & Michalczyk, 2004

Terra typica: Costa Rica (Central America).

Material examined: 13 specimens: Los Manantiales (25°43′02.98′′N, 100°04′18.71′′W, ca. 353 m asl), SE of Dulces Nombres , Pesqueria, Nuevo Leon. Mexico. Moss on tree ( Ehretia anacua ), coll. Miguel Angel Gonzalez Botello, 4 January 2014 GoogleMaps .

Comments: Our specimens correspond well with the original description and type material. The species is known in Costa Rica ( Kaczmarek & Michalczyk 2004; Kaczmarek et al. 2014), and Saint Paul parish, Commonwealth of Dominica, ( Hinton et al. 2013) . Doryphoribius quadrituberculatus probably has a wide Neotropical distribution and this is a new record for Mexico.
