Neoarisemus maesi Collantes & Martínez-Ortega, 1999 was described based on male specimens collected in Nicaragua. Here we record this species in Mexico for the first time. This corresponds to the first record of the genus in this country. Neoarisemus maesi is the only species of the genus registered in the study area and for that reason the sexes can be easily associated. We present morphological description of the previously unknown female.
