Only five species of Bruchidae have been recorded from the Dominican Republic D.R) per se although records exist for “Hispaniola” and Haiti. Collections made during a recent trip (1992) by R. Turnbow and M.C. Thomas have added data for five additional species, one of which is a new West Indian record whereas the other three are range extensions of species previously known from the West Indies. Geographical ranges for each species are briefly indicated.
