Dyobelba reevesi n; sp. is proposed based on adults and nymphs collected from mosses and sedges on Mount Washington, New Hampshire, USA, at an elevation of 1500m. The association with other Dyobelba species is tentative, due to a unique combination of character states relating to leg setation and nymphal sclerites. Nymphs commonly carry exuviae of Collembola attached to their own exuvial scalps.
