ABSTRACT. A new species of the very large, basically warm temperate to tropical Eurasian genus Hyleoglomeris is described from Tajikistan: H. bohaci sp.n. This is only the second congener to be reported from Central Asia, differing from all members of the awchasica-group it belongs to by an indistinct colour pattern against a light yellowish brown dorsal coloration, from the geographically closest H. kirgisica Golovatch, 1976, from Kyrgyzstan, mostly in the less numerous striae on tergum 2, and the presence of a minute, thin, flagelloid filament on a cup-shaped top of each telopod syncoxital horn.
