Pseudocypridopsis n. gen. is described to comprise the species Pseudocypridopsis clathrata (Klie, 1936) found, until now, only in Skadar Valley (Montenegro, SE Europe). This genus is characterised by the absence of the furca in both female and male. In this paper the male is described for the first time. The taxonomic position of the new genus within the subfamily Cypridopsinae is discussed.
