Lordomyrma taylori sp.n. is described from Silent Valley National Park, Kerala in southwestern India. This is the second species of the genus known from India, with Lordomyrma lakshmi Taylor, 2012 reported earlier. This new species resembles most the Bornean Lordomyrma reticulata Lucky & Sarnat, 2008 from which it can be separated by the less reticulated cephalic sculpture, larger and more upcurved propodeal spines and denser sculpture of gaster.
