Martynopsis laticollis gen. n., sp. n. of the Laurasian Mesozoic beetle family Parandrexidae from the Barremian (Lower Cretaceous) of Spain, is described. The diagnosis of the family is revised and emended, and a new synonymy for the generic names Parandrexis Martynov, 1926 and Parandrexia Hong, 1983 is proposed. Martynopsis laticollis gen. n., sp. n. enlarges the palaeogeographic distribution of the family from Asia to western Europe, and amplifies the fossil record of the family from the Middle–Upper Jurassic to the Lower Cretaceous.
