A new species, Seticeros convergens Vlasak and Santos-Silva (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Prio­ninae) is described from Ecuador. An updated key to species of Seticeros Perger and Santos-Silva, 2010 is provided.

Perger and Santos-Silva (2010) created Seticeros to include Anacanthus aquilus Thomson, 1865 and their new species, S. tunupai. Currently, the genus includes one more species, S. granulocephalus Ramírez Campos, Esteban-Durán and Santos-Silva, 2011. The known geographical distribution is from Costa Rica to Colombia (Monné 2021; Tavakilian and Chevillotte 2021). Here we are describing a new species from Ecuador.
