Description: A comprehensive biodiversity study of the Scolytidae (Coleoptera) of Puerto Rico, USA has been underway for several years. Seventy-one species are now recorded from the island. One new genus, Allothenemus, is described with Allothenemus minutus new species, as the type species. An additional 13 new species are described: Chramesus atlanticus, Scolytodes puertoricensis, S. atlanticus, Pseudothysanoes magnispinatus, Hypothenemus amplissimus, H. concavifrons, Trischidias puertoricensis, Xyleborus atlanticus, Theoborus puertoricensis, Coptoborus bellus, Xyleborinus insulosus, Pityophthorus convexicollis, and Corthylus insularis. Twenty-one species are recorded from Puerto Rico for the first time. Four new cases of synonymy are reported: Dryocoetoides cristatus (FABRICIUS) (= Dryocoetoides caracicolai HOPKINS, syn.n.), Hypothenemus crudiae (PANZER) (= Stephanoderes trinitatis HOPKINS, syn.n.) and Monarthrum mali (FITCH) (= Pterocyclon praeustum EGGERS, syn.n., and Pterocyclon omissum SCHEDL, syn.n.). Two species, Hypothenemus hampei WESTWOOD and Xyleborus xylographus (SAY), are deleted from the Puerto Rican list. New host records for several species are reported.
