ABSTRACT. Cladopelma acutum sp.n. is described and figured based on two males and two females collected at light in Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture, Honshu, Japan. The species is closely related to C. costum Yan, Jin et Wang, 2008 and C. inflexum (Freeman, 1957) in some aspects, but distinguished from these two species by the transverse anal tergite band lacking the posteriorly elongating median apodeme, and the lunate gonostylus which has a small membranous area on the junction with gonocoxite.

KEY WORDS: Diptera, Chironomidae, Chironominae, Cladopelma, new species, Japan.
