Chelonoidum araiorum sp. nov. (Coleoptera, Scydmaenidae, Cephenniini) is described from Central Honshu, Japan. The new species is easily distinguishable from its Japanese congeners by having all antennomeres longer than wide, distinctively more slender body and the shape of the aedeagus. Members of the tribe Cephenniini are known to occur in the forest floor; the new species is unique in inhabiting the intertidal zone of the Pacific coast. The male habitus and the aedeagus are illustrated.
