A new species of Anillinus Casey, 1918, is described from the Oak Ridge area, Roane County, Tennessee, in the eastern United States. Based on the presence of two patches with effaced microsculpture on the vertex, Anillinus inexpectatus, new species, belongs to the Anillinus loweae-group of species. Within this group, a patch of long setae on the ventral margin of the median lobe of the aedeagus places the new species close to Anillinus steevesi Barr, 1996. Modifications to a previous key for the A. loweae-group species are provided for identification of the new species, and zoogeographical considerations and biogeographical barriers for the A. loweae-group species are discussed.
