Abstract. The large, basically Southeast Asian genus Glyphiulus appears to be represented in the fauna of Borneo (Kalimantan, Indonesia) by a new, quite aberrant species, G. striganovae sp.n., which fails to readily fit into either of the two species groups currently delimited in the genus, i.e. the granulatus- or the javanicus-group. This new species tentatively remains ungrouped pending the discovery of further congeners south of Malay Peninsula, including Borneo.
