Two species in the weevil subfamily Conoderinae are described from Cocos Island, Costa Rica. The more common Hoplocopturus sherrywernerorum, new species, is sexually dimorphic and has a Lechriops-like pattern of setae similar to the Central American H. ochreicollis Champion, although it does not seem closely related to any mainland species. Copturomimus hoguei, new species, is a larger species with elytral costae similar to the widespread Central American C. octocostatus Champion.
