A new species of Harpiola from Taiwan is described based on 11 specimens collected between 1998 and 2004. Careful examination of these specimens and those of the genus Murina, revealed the valid characters distinguishing Harpiola from Murina, including the enlarged upper incisors, the well developed first premolars in both toothrows with their bulk subequal to canines and the second premolars in the corresponding toothrow, and the strongly bifid lower canine. The new species from Taiwan can be distinguished from Harpiola grisea in India by having different shape of second upper premolar and different structure of first upper molar.
