Selasia socotrana sp. nov. is described from Socotra and compared with Selasia homhilia Geisthardt, 2003. Selasia homhilia is shown to differ in morphology of mandibles and aedeagus from all hitherto known representatives of Drilini. The diagnostic characters of both investigated species are figured and their relationships are briefly discussed.
