Abstract

The new species Eukoenenia maroccana is described from six specimens (two males, two females and two immatures) collected in Kef Aziza Cave, Morocco, and is distinguished from all other Eukoenenia species by the presence of thickened opisthosomal glandular setae in males on sternites IV– VI. The genitalia and chaetotaxy of both adult sexes show differences from other species of Eukoenenia and are discussed in this paper.
