Diagnosis. Body length 7.3–8.3 mm. Dorsal surface black, smooth and shiny. Elytra with yellow markings consisting of two divided patches on each elytron. Antennae and legs pale with darker femora.

Comments on classification. Tetragonoderus flavovittatus   is similar to T. quadrum (Fabricius, 1792)   from Yemen mainland which has a narrower pronotum. In T.flavovittatus   the aedeagus has four large internal spines while in T. quadrum   there are six much smaller spines.

Collection circumstances. The specimens from Wadi Fa’rhoh, Nogid, collected by V. Neumann were found in dry shrub land. In 2009 and 2010 the species was found in similar environments on plains (near Hadiboh, Wadi Ayhaft, and other places), in the day underneath stones and at night running on the soil.

Distribution. A species endemic to Socotra Island.
