An illustrated redescription of Labahitha gibsonhilli (Savory, 1943) known only from two syntype females from Christmas Island, is given. The species is re-diagnosed and the lectotype and paralectotype are designated. Labahitha gibsonhilli differs from L. oonopiformis (Bristowe, 1938), the only other known congener, in having a reversed-cordate sternum, as well as in the shape of the receptacles.
