Abstract

Seven new species and one new subspecies are described from Mexico and Central America. Euglossa obtusa is comman in Mexico, but was not collected until cinceole was used as "bait". Euglossa dissimula is common in Panama and Colombia, but has been confused with E. igniventris. The other species are much less frequent, at least in collections. Euglossa oleolucens, from southeastern Costa Rica, is very similar to E. g. gorgonensis, but is easily distinguished from the sympatric E. g. erythrophana.
