Pteroplatus antonkozlovi Santos-Silva and Botero, sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) is described from Panama. Neocompsa thelgema Martins, 1971 is recorded from Panama, and chromatic variation is discussed. The female of Icimauna aysa Martins and Galileo, 1991 is described. Some corrections in a recently published work on Acanthoderini are provided, and the combination Scythropopsis pupillata (Bates, 1880) is established as having precedence over the simultaneously published combination Aegomorphus pupillatus (Bates, 1880).

Recently, we received a relatively large number of specimens of Cerambycidae from Panama, collected by Anton O. Kozlov and Yuliya Kovaleva (Russia) in 2018 and 2019. Among these specimens we found a new species of Pteroplatus Buquet, 1840, and new country record for Neocompsa thelgema Martins, 1971. Additionally, we found a female of Icimauna aysa Martins and Galileo, 1991. As this last species was mentioned only in catalogs and checklists after the original description of the male, which omitted some characters, we took the opportunity to describe the female in detail.

We also take the opportunity to provide some corrections to the work by Santos-Silva et al. (2020).
