Abstract Bicoxidens aridis sp. n. is described from five male specimens collected from northern Zimbabwe. Besides being the smallest member of the genus, B. aridis has a hook-shaped distal telocoxite, a telopodite with a long postfemur and a proximal clockwise coil. The discovery of this species suggests that the geographical range of the genus may extend further north into Zambia.
