Oroceguera andersoni n. gen. and n. sp., an apterous braconid in the subfamily Doryctinae is described from Costa Rica. Portions of the diagnostic keys from Marsh (1997; 2002) are combined and updated to include this new genus. Diagnostic features are presented to distinguish it from other Doryctinae; its unusual morphology is discussed and conjecture is made on life history.
