ABSTRACT: A new species Carpelimus (Bucephalinus) kimi, sp.n. is described and illustrated from Myanmar. The new species is closely related to C. (Bucephalinus) nepalicus (Coiffait, 1982) and C. (Bucephalinus) pseudonepalicus Gildenkov, 2013, which are similar in size and microsculpture of head and pronotum surface, eyes structure, and shape of depression at the base of pronotal disc. It differs from these species in a much darker coloration and a much more distinct and large punctation of elytra. Reliably differs only by the structure of aedeagus.

KEY WORDS: Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Oxytelinae, Carpelimus, new species, Oriental Region, Myanmar.
