Osakatheta yasukoae Maruyama, Klimaszewski & Gusarov gen. et sp. nov. (Aleocharinae) is described based on specimens collected from the intertidal zones in Ôsaka-wan, Ôsaka-fu and Ise-wan, Mie-ken, Honshû, Japan. This is the first record of true intertidal species of Athetini from the West Pacific coast (East Palearctic). Osakatheta may be readily distinguished from other genera of Athetini by the long and erect setae covering its whole body.
