We describe a new species of Limnichidae (Coleoptera) from Eocene Baltic amber, Platypelochares electricus sp. nov. The species belongs to the extant genus Platypelochares Champion, 1923, with six species distributed in the Oriental Region, characterised by an almost hemispherical shape, lateral articulation of the meso- and metatarsi, and presence of excavations on the hypomera. Platypelochares electricus sp. nov. can be separated from the other species of the genus mainly by the longer extension of the row of tubercles on the pronotum and the punctation of the elytra and metacoxa.
