Gondwanoscurus socotrensis sp. nov. is described and figured. Specimens were collected on Socotra Island, Yemen. The genus Gondwanoscurus Ježek, 2002, with seven species (two from Peninsular Malaysia, two from Thailand and three from Sabah, North Borneo), was previously recorded only from the Oriental Region. In addition, two common species of moth flies are newly recorded for Socotra Island: Tinearia acanthostyla (Tokunaga, 1957) and T. alternata (Say, 1824).
