The monotypic clerid genus Ohanlonella Rifkind (Coleoptera: Cleridae: Clerinae), described from Oaxaca, is reported for the fi rst time from the state of Veracruz. The recently discovered population shows distinctly different coloration from the type series of O. esperanzae Rifkind, but appears to be otherwise identical. The Veracruz morph is briefly characterized and illustrated, and its significance is discussed.
