ABSTRACT. A new species of the rather large, basically tropical/subtropical Asian genus Cryptocorypha is described from western Myanmar: C. perplexa sp.n. This is the 13th congener, also being the first to be reported from Myanmar. It differs from all sufficiently well described species of the genus in having 20 body segments in the ♂, combined with apparently the most complex gonopod structure.
