The genus Erlandia (Cerambycinae: Erlandiini) was described by Aurivillius in 1904, containing a single species, Erlandia inopinata, distributed in Bolivia, Argentina, and Paraguay. A new species, E. megacephala, from Argentina is described, and illustrated here. A key and distribution map of both species are provided, with a generic diagnosis using characters of both species.
