Two new species and a new genus of Cerambycidae are described from South America: Cotyclytus arriagadai sp. nov., from Bolivia; and Lembu dieguezi, gen. nov., sp. nov., from Paraguay. Orthomegas irroratus (Lameere, 1915) is redescribed, based on the second and third known specimens, and its distribution is expanded to include Ecuador. The male of Jamesia fuscofasciata Dillon and Dillon, 1952 is described and illustrated for the first time, and the distribution of the species is expanded to Peru. Thirty-two new country records (twelve for Paraguay, fifteen for Peru, two for Ecuador, three for Bolivia) and one new province record (Argentina) are presented.
