Coatonachthodes ovambolandicus, a new genus and species of termitophilous Staphylinidae (Subfamily Aleocharinae, Tribe Corotocini, Subtribe Corotocina), is described from Ovamboland, South-West Africa associated with Fulleritermes contractus (Sjoestedt). This is the first record of a termitophile from the nests of Fulleritermes. Its host relationships, its zoogeographic significance, and its remarkable resemblance to termite workers is discussed.
