Symphyla (Myriapoda) are reported for the first time from the subantarctic islands. The study is based upon a collection from the Crozet Islands made by Dr. Lewis Davies, Durham. One Scolopendrellidae species was found. It belongs to the genus Symphylella and is new to science. It is described and its affinities are discussed. A lectotype for the closely related Symphylella texana is selected and the diagnosis of the species is emended.
