A new species of the genus Ananteris Thorell is described from the Cocos region, in the State of Bahia, in Brazil, based on two adult specimens, one male and one female. Ananteris carrasco sp. n. is the second species to be described from the Cocos region, constituting a new case of sympatry among species of the genus Ananteris: Ananteris carrasco sp. n. is sympatric with Ananteris evellynae Lourenço, 2004.
