Recent collections of Osoriinae from Cuba revealed three new species, Allotrochus cubensis sp. nov., Thoracophorus cubensis sp. nov., and Antillosorius martini sp. nov. In total, 34 species of Osoriinae are currently known from this island including the three new ones. An identifi cation key to the species and a list of species with all records known to me are provided. According to this study 8 species (21 %) out of the 39 species are endemic for Cuba and 4 (11 %) show a pantropical distribution.
