Actium vestigialis Caterino and Chandler, new species, from Santa Catalina Island, California, is described. This new species is brachypterous, has strongly reduced eyes, and is only known to occur on this one island. The leaf litter fauna of California's Channel Islands is inadequately examined, and this discovery may indicate a significant fauna of endemic litter-associated insects.
