Nearchus foliatus spec. novo is described from a single female specimen collected in eastern Kalimantan in 1925. This species is readily distinguished from others in the genus by the large foliaceous lobes on the legs. A key to the genus is provided. The male and egg of N. redtenbacheri Dohrn are described for the first time; males of this genus have not been recorded previously.
