A new species of leech, Haemopis latero-maculatum (Annelida, Hirudinea, Hirudidae), is described, and its ecology and known distribution are summarized. The new species was discovered in the summer of 1954 in collections of leeches taken from a cool-water bog, the Little Sioux Bog, in northwestern Iowa. Since 1954, the species has been collected from three spring-fed shore lines of lakes in Minnesota: Echo Lake and Pelican Lake, St. Louis County, and Island Lake Outlet, Hubbard County.
