Ochthebius hajeki sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Hydraenidae) is described from Socotra Island (Yemen). It is a member of the O. foveolatus subgroup (sensu Jäch 1991). The new species differs from the two species of this subgroup occurring in the Arabian Peninsula (O. innexus Balfour-Browne, 1951, and O. harteni Jäch & Delgado, 2010) by its paler colouration and the shape of the aedeagus. Ochthebius hajeki sp. nov. is the second hydraenid species known from Socotra.
