Eurhopalothrix depressa sp. n. is described from Southern Brazil. The species belongs to the bolaui group characterised by well developed propodeal teeth and large specialized clavate hairs on the body. It can be distinguished from all other neotropical Eurhopalothrix species by a distinct ridge dividing the head into a lower anterior and a higher posterior part and by the reduced number of 16 specialised hairs on the head. A key to all New World species of Eurhopalothrix is added.
