Perittopus ceylanicus sp.n. from Sri Lanka is described. It is the first record of the subfamily Perittopinae from this island. Perittopus ceylanicus sp.n. differs from all other species of the genus in a distinct size dimorphism of the sexes. The male is smaller than the female and has strongly incrassate profemora. Perittopus ceylanicus sp.n. is more closely related with the Southeast Asian species of Perittopus than with those from South India.
