We report new records of copepods of the genus Mesocyclops from Cuba. In the tropics, several species of Mesocyclops have shown promise as biological control agents for the larvae of disease-bearing mosquitoes. Mesocyclops aspericornis is considered pan-tropical, but has not previously been recorded here. Mesocyclops reidae, now found in a new locality, was previously reported from Cuba under the name M. ellipticus. We briefly review pertinent aspects of the taxonomic history, geographical distribution, and biology of these two species and of the two other members of the genus that are currently known to inhabit Cuba.
