- The Neotropical species Enneboeus marmoratus Champion, 1893 is reported from the USA based on the collection of three specimens in urban San Francisco, California, representing a new country record for the species. Additional specimens were observed and photographed at the same locality on various dates during August to October 2017. This is likely a recent introduction, and its level of establishment is unknown. This also represents the first record of Archeocrypticidae from California. Additional records of the only other known North American (north of Mexico) species, Enneboeus caseyi Kaszab, 1981, are provided. A world catalog of this small group of beetles is included.
