Abstract

Cotyorica nemethi n. sp., one of the Tertiary relict western members of the geographically disjunct subfamily Phaedusinae, is described from Ordu Province of northern Turkey. It shows similarity to the species of the subterranean genera Graecophaedusa Rähle, 1982 and Nothoserrulina Németh & Szekeres, 1995 having high positioned lamellae inferior and subcolumellaris, but differs from these to an extent that justifies distinct generic status.
