A new mydid fly, Nemomydas hooki, n. sp. is described and illustrated from specimens collected in Bastorp and Bexar Counties, Texas. A holotype male, 10 paratype males and 2 paratype females are designated. This species is most similar to N. solitarius (Johnson), and the characteristics for their separation are summarized. The existing taxonomic key to the group is modified to include the new species. Ecological notes on the habitat of this species is also presented.
