A new species, Homidia emeiensis, is described from Sichuan Province, China. It is similar to the Chinese species H. tiantaiensis Chen & Lin 1998 and to the Korean species H. minuta Kim & Lee 1995. The new species can be distinguished from the former by the much smaller number of macrochaetae on fourth abdominal segment (6–8 vs. 22–27) and from the latter by the much smaller number of dental spines (5–17 vs. 20–25).
