Diagnosis

Cercyon can be distinguished from other hydrophilid genera occurring in the Greater Antilles by the following combination of characters: antenna with compact club; prothorax with conspicuous antennal groove not reaching pronotal margin; medial part of prosternum not demarcated from lateral parts; metaventrite without arcuate lines in anterolateral corners; mesoventral plate fusiform, narrowing anteriorly and posteriorly, touching anterior margin of metaventrite in one point.
Cercyon species are very similar to the members of Pelosoma, a Neotropical genus that is recorded from the Lesser Antilles; Pelosoma differs from Cercyon by the mesoventral plate widely contacting the metaventrite (it only narrowly contacts it in Cercyon). Small species of Cercyon may resemble the members of Oosternum, which can be easily distinguished from Cercyon by possessing a metaventrite with an arcuate ridge delimiting its anterolateral corner, and in some species also by elevated median part of the prosternum.
