ABSTRACT
The extremely rich stygobiont malacofauna of the Balkans is still poorly studied, and the systematics is based mostly on shells whose characters are often misleading. An interesting stygobiont gastropod species was found in several springs feeding the Cetina River in the SW. part of Sinj Basin in Croatia. Its shell resembled the ones of moitessieriid genera Paladilhiopsis, Bythiospeum, or Iglica. Analyses of COI and H3 markers placed it close to the hydrobiid Montenegrospeum bogici Pešić et Glöer, 2012 from central Montenegro. It is congeneric but molecularly and morphologically distinct. The new species is described herein as Montenegrospeum sketi n. sp.
