Duckeanthidium, a genus of large anthidiine bees hitherto known only from the Amazon valley, is here reported from Costa Rica and French Guiana. Atropium, supposedly an African genus, is neotropical and a junior synonym of Duckeanthidium; its type species, A. atropos (Smith), is a new combination in Duckeanthidium and a senior synonym of D. megachiliforme (Ducke), the type species of Duckeanthidium. A new species, D. thielei, is described from Costa Rica and compared with D. atropos.
