Holotype: GUMF 0261 female 54.5 mm SL. Paratypes: GUMF 0262/3 3 specimens 41.0–54.7 mm SL, GUMF 0263/2 2 specimens 63.1–68.1 mm SL, GUMF 0264/3 3 specimens 49.6–61.3 mm SL, ZSI FF7225 60.4 mm SL.
Known only from the type locality: Krem Khung, about 1.5 km from Larket village, East Jaintia Hills District, Meghalaya, India. 25°23ʹ22ʺ N, 92°34ʹ49ʺ E. 880m altitude.
The new species was collected from a small stagnant pool a few square meters in area and about 1 m in depth, located in a wet passage some 500 m from the main entrance of Krem Khung. The pool bed is mostly sandy with scattered pebbles. The water was clear, pH 8.6, and a very low D.O. of 1.1 ppm when analyzed in the month of April 2015. No other macrofauna were recorded inside the cave except weakly-pigmented crabs and crayfish, crickets, cockroaches and millipedes.
