A new species of Phasmatodea, Phanocles costaricensis n.sp., from Costa Rica as well as its eggs are described and illustrated. It is closely related to the type-species Phanocles burkartii (Saussure, 1868), but differs in its smaller size, being comparatively slender, the smaller dilations of the seventh abdominal tergite and in lacking the large lobes on the head and extremities.
