ABSTRACT. A new shore-fly species, Paralimna (Paralimna) bocki sp.n. from Australia, is described. Due to general brown coloration and many strong facial setae the new species is differentiated well externally from the other Australian species of the subgenus Paralimna Loew, 1862. The new species differs by the shape of presurstyli in posterior view: presurtyli of P. (P.) bocki broader than those of P. (P.) millepuncta and significantly longer and narrower than in P. (P.) spatiosa.

KEY WORDS: Diptera, Ephydridae, Paralimna bocki, new species, Australia, description, key.
