ABSTRACT. A new pseudoscorpion species of the genus Roncus L. Koch, 1873, Roncus sutikvae sp.n., from an epigean site (Sutikva hill, village of Mravince, near the town of Solin and the city of Split) in central Dalmatia (Croatia) is described and diagnosed. All important morphological traits of the new taxon are specified and drawn. The new pseudoscorpion species is compared with its closest congeners inhabiting the surrounding regions in Croatia. This new epigean pseudoscorpion is endemic to a small area of the Dinarides in central Dalmatia. A key to the species of Roncus known to occur in Croatia is given.
