A new species in the Cribrarula cribraria complex (Cypraeidae) is described from New South Wales, Australia, on the basis of a multivariate analysis of shell characters, the radula and odontophore cartilage. Cribrarula gravida sp. nov., can be easily separated from its congeners by its large, inflated shell, with rostrate extremities, large elliptical off-white dorsal spots against a light brown dorsal coat, and columellar teeth thicker than in shells of most species of Cribrarula. This is the twelfth known species in Cribrarula, and the third from Australian waters.
