ABSTRACT. A new cryptodesmid is described from Western Malaysia: Circulocryptus magnus sp.n. It differs from all three hitherto known congeners by as few as 18 radii (and 19 sectors) at the anterior margin of the collum, four transverse rows of mostly setigerous tubercles/bosses on each postcollum metatergum and five lobulations at the lateral margin of each postcollum paratergum, the conspicuously inflated, glandular # femora 3, as well as certain minor details of gonopodal structure, in particular the remarkably prominent, broad, apicolateral lobe (lo) of the basal part (b) of the gonopodal telopodite.

KEY WORDS: Diplopoda, Cucrulocryptus, taxonomy, new species, Malaysia.
