We document for the first time in Bangaldesh Dario kajal Britz & Kullander, 2013, a little-known miniature badid species originally described from the Jaintia Hills, India. We provide records of 8 specimens from 3 localities, of which, 2 are in the Meghna basin. Our finding also confirms its distribution from the Brahmaputra drainage, about 300 km southwest from the type locality. The genus Dario Kullander & Britz, 2002 was previously unknown from Bangladesh.
