A new species of Mitridae, Domiporta valdacantamessae, is described from Dingo Beach, Queensland, Australia. The shell shows similarities with other Queensland Domiporta species: D. carnicolor Reeve, 1844, D. filiaris Linnaeus, 1771, D. gloriola Lamarck, 1811, D. granatina Cernohorsky, 1970 and D. praestantissima Röding 1798, however the new species can be differentiated based on the clathrate micro-sculpture. At present this species is only known from Queensland, Australia.
