Specimens of Eucnemidae collected in the Bahamas were re-evaluated following initial identifications completed in 2007. Two new species of false click beetle (Coleoptera: Eucnemidae) are described from several islands in the Bahamas. These new species are: Golbachia rufa sp. nov. and Fornax bahamiensis sp. nov. Diagnostic differences are noted for each species and compared with similar species found in both Cuba and the United States.
