Abstract
A new species of blindsnake is described from Hong Kong, China, bringing the total number of scolecophidian species there to three and the number of endemic snakes to three. This species is characterized by having 18 scale rows, a T-V supralabial imbrication pattern, and a unicameral tracheal lung, and it appears to be a member of the Typhlops porrectus species group of South and Southeast Asia.
