A new species of Pseudoniphargus has been discovered in Gran Canaria in a spring at an altitude of 710 m a.s.l.; it has an elongate peduncle of the male uropod 3. Moreover, P. fontinalis was found in the same island; this is the first record outside Tenerife from where it was described. The biogeographical implications of these records are studied.
