ABSTRACT. A new shore-fly species, Notiphila (Notiphila) obscuripennis sp.n. from Indonesia, is described. Due to general dark brown coloration the new species resembles Oriental species Notiphila (N.) nigrina Krivosheina, 2001, striated face with dark brown carina and parafacials resembles Oriental species Notiphila (N.) nosata Krivosheina, 2001. However by the structure of male terminalia the new species is close to Notiphila (N.) indistincta Krivosheina, 2001, differing from it by longer apically broadened presurstylus co-vered with setae on basal 2/3. The new species is known from Bali Island only. A key to 21 Oriental species of Notiphila is composed.
