Abstract

Three new species of Olopachys are described from Trabzon and Artvin Provinces, Eastern Black Sea Region of Turkey. Two of the species O. digitus sp. nov. and O. semicirculus sp.nov. are described based on the females and males. Males of both species have a characteristic spermatodactyl with a distinct modified process at the base. A new species O. crescentus sp. nov. is described based on the females only. Females of O. crescentus have uniquely modified tubes of the sperm access system which differ from all its congeners.
