The collections of Bythocaris in Russian museums and research institutes were studied. Three species, B. biruli Kobjakova, 1964, B. curvirostris Kobjakova, 1957 and B. irene Retovsky, 1946, are redescribed, and a new species, B. kobjakovae spec. nov. is described. The intra-specific variation of six species of Bythocaris is analysed. A key to the known species of the genus is provided.
