ABSTRACT. A new species, Malthonica podoprygorai sp.n., from the Crimean Mountains (Ukraine) is described and illustrated. It is related to M. argaeica (Nosek, 1905), M. lehtineni Guseinov et al., 2005, M. lyncea (Brignoli, 1978), M. pasquinii (Brignoli, 1978) and M. pseudolyncea Guseinov et al., 2005, but can be distinguished from these by the extremely small body, the pale body coloration, the shape of the retrolateral tibial apophysis and the terminal receptacula being larger than basal ones.
