Tropidophis xanthogaster, new species, is described from Guanahacabibes Peninsula, Pinar del Río Province, Cuba. It has a grayish-brown or greenish-gray dorsum with eight rows of dark brown spots and a yellow venter which lacks spots on the anterior one-third. It is placed in the pardalis group mainly because of its small size, low number of ventral scales (155-164), eight spot rows, and 23 scale rows at midbody. It differs from its closest relative, T. pardalis, by a combination of color, pattern, and scale differences.
