Abstract

A new species, Dasylobus nevadensis, is described; it inhabits high areas of the Sierra Nevada, the highest mountain chain in Spanish mainland. The new species is smaller than all other Iberian Dasylobus species and has short, annulated legs, light silver coloration, and is juvenile-like. Together with Roeweritta carpentieri (Roewer 1953), this is an orophilous endemic species from Sierra Nevada.
