ABSTRACT – A new species of subterranean carnivorous water beetle, Limbodessus bennetti sp. nov. (Dytiscidae) is described from an alluvial aquifer in the northern Pilbara of Western Australia. The new species is most closely related, by morphological and DNA evidence, to species of stygobitic Limbodessus from the Yilgarn region of Western Australia.
