During revisionary work on the tribe Curiini LeConte, 1873, a new country record for Plectromerus exis Zayas was noticed. Plectromerus exis was described by Fernando de Zayas in 1975 from five specimens collected in several localities in Cuba (Zayas, 1975) and is listed as endemic to that island (Monné, 2005; Monné and Hovore, 2005; Peck, 2005). The senior author recently studied the holotype and type series of P. exis deposited in the Zayas Collection, La Habana, Cuba (Nearns, 2005).
