We describe a new species of Tetramorium, which has so far only been found in Gibraltar. Tetramorium parvioculum\ud sp. n. belongs to the simillimum-group, which is of Afrotropical origin. It is likely that this species is a non native and was imported\ud with plant material originating from tropical Africa. The ecology of this new species is discussed.
