Five new species of anilline ground beetles are described from Alabama. Two species, Anillinus kingi, new species, and Anillinus davidsoni, new species, are litter and endogean species, respectively, from Blount Mountain Ridge (St. Clair County). Anillinus cavicola, new species, and Anillinus tombarri, new species, are troglobitic species from caves in Marshall County and the limestone belt of the Wills Creek Anticline (De Kalb County), respectively. Anillinus tombarri, at 3 mm length, is the largest representative of the genus known to science. Anillinus hirsutus, new species (Keel Mountain, Madison/Jackson Counties) is unique within the genus because of peculiarities of ventral vestiture not documented in other Anillinus species. Additional county records are given for Anillinus folkertsi Sokolov and Carlton, Anillinus steevesi Barr, and Anillinus valentinei (Jeannel). With these new discoveries, the known Alabama Anillinus fauna now includes eight species. All species are illustrated with images and drawings, and a key to the Alabama species is provided.
