We present a key to the three species of the genus Phelister Marseul, 1854 (Coleoptera, Histeridae), occurring in Cuba along with diagnoses and habitus drawings. All three species are newly recorded for the cadaveric fauna in Cuba. In addition, we address the taxonomic composition and distribution of the genus Phelister in the country. Phelister completus Schmidt, 1893 from the West Indies is recorded for the first time from Cuba.
