Aplagiognathus Thomson, 1861 (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Prioninae, Macrotomini) and its two species, A. spinosus (Newman, 1840) and A. hybostoma Bates, 1879, are redescribed and figured. As the type of A. spinosus is apparently lost, a neotype for the species is designated herein as is a lectotype for A. hybostoma. Keys to the North and Central American genera of Macrotomini (excluding the West Indies) and to Aplagiognathus species are provided. Details on the numerous changes in the nomenclatural history of the genus are also chronicled.
