Three new species of semi-aquatic freshwater earthworms of the genus Glyphidrilus Horst, 1889 are described from Malaysia. Glyphidrilus bisegmentus sp. n. was collected from Air Banun Pandig, Perak, Glyphidrilus kotatinggi sp. n. from Kota Tinggi waterfall, Johor, and Glyphidrilus peninsularis sp. n. from Sungei Bantang, Johor. For comparison, type and non-type material of five morphologically similar species was reinvestigated. The descriptions of the new species include illustrations of the external and internal morphological characteristics. Copyright © 2012 Magnolia Press.
