Abstract: A new species of the genus Potamophylax Wallengren 1891, P. asturicus sp. nov.,
from Spain is described and figured. This new species is a microendemic of the
Spanish Cantabrian Mountains and is closely related to P. albergaria Malicky,
1976, from which it differs in a combination of genitalic features, especially
those concerning the shape of segment IX and the inferior appendages.
Additionally, we provide a taxonomic key to facilitate the identification of the
males of all Iberian species of this genus.
