Unamis giuliagnii n.sp. is described from the edge of ice fields at 11,800 ft. elevation, near Finger lake, Inyo Co., California. The species is illustrated and a key is provided to distinguish it from the four previously known species.
The genus Unamis was erected for the single species truncata (Casey, 1893) from California. Fall (1922) added a second California species. Hatch (1957) described two more species from the Pacific Northwest and reviewed the genus. Little is known of the habits of the species of Unamis.
