Resumen

Cuba tiene la mayor diversidad de serpientes del género Tropidophis, lo cual representa 53 % de todas las especies conocidas. Tropidophis steinleini sp. nov. es descrita de la región oriental de Cuba, lo cual eleva a 17 el número de especies en este archipiélago. La nueva especie está más cercanamente emparentada con T. wrighti, T. spiritus y T. morenoi. Se discuten las relaciones filogenéticas de la nueva especie y otras del género en Cuba, sobre la base de datos moleculares, y se clasifican en tres grupos de acuerdo con la topología del árbol obtenido.
