A new species of Leptostylochus Bock, 1925 (Platyhelminthes: Polycladida), Leptostylochus victoriensis sp. nov., is described from an intertidal region in western Victoria, Australia. The new species is distinguished from congeners primarily by the morphology of the penis and penis pocket and by the anterior extension of the proximal vagina.
