A new species of the Copelatus erichsoni group is described. Copelatus yaguarete sp. nov. was collected from rock pools in the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary (CBWS) in Belize (Central America). The species is superficially similar to Copelatus terminalis Sharp, 1882 with respect to its coloration but is readily distinguished by both external characters and the male genitalia.
