A new Frieseinae Massoud, 1967 semi-aquatic species, Friesea najtae n. sp., is described from southern Western Australia. The new species can be distinguished from all other Friesea Dalla Torre, 1895 species by the combination of 8 + 8 eyes, six anal spines without papillae on abdomen VI, absence of capitate chaetae on the abdomen and no capitate tenent hairs on tibiotarsi and fully developed furcula (stage 1-2). Barcode (mtDNA - COI) sequence is provided.
