Six new species of Euscelus Schoenherr from Central America are described, illustrated and mapped: E. oaxacensis new species, E. stockwelli new species, E. similis new species, E. spinosus new species, E. bivittatus new species, and E. maculicollis new species. These new species and new records for E. submaculatus Voss and E. vittaticollis Voss, previously known only from South America, brings the total number of euscelines in Central America to 22. Male genitalia, including unique endophallic structures, are illustrated for each new species. A key based on external characters is provided to separate the new species from all known Central American euscelines.
