ABSTRACT. Dzhungaria gigantea gen.n., sp.n. is described from the Dzhungarsky Alatau Mountains, eastern Kazakhstan. The new taxon possesses diagnostic characters of Anopsobiidae coupled with numerous primitive characters shared with Henicopidae and Lithobiidae, suggesting that Dzhungaria is a relictual taxon at the base of the Anopsobiidae.

KEY WORDS: Anopsobiidae, taxonomy, new genus, new species, East KazakhstaN.
