Callyntra Solier, 1836, an endemic genus of Chile and Argentina, contains 21 valid species. Through field sampling and review of material from the coast of the Regions V and VI, we find specimens assigned to C. laticollis morphologically differentiated from the assigned species. Also, their morphology differ from all other nominal species of the genus. Therefore, in this article we describe C. inconsiderata sp. nov. and discuss regarding the relationship with other species of Callyntra, morphological variability, sexual dimorphism and conservation.
