ABSTRACT
Shells of the representatives of the genus Bracenica Radoman, 1973: B. spiridoni, B. vitojaensis and a new species, collected at the Kotor Bay (Montenegro) are presented. For the new species also the operculum (characteristic of the genus), penis and the female reproductive organs are described and figured. Considering the shell, operculum, and soft part morphology the new species belongs to the genus Bracenica. Cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) of mitochondrial DNA sequence of the new species places it in the subfamily Sadlerianinae Szarowska, 2006, and Bracenica is the sister genus of Sadleriana Clessin, 1890. COI sequences of Hauffenia plana Bole, 1961 clearly indicate its placement within the genus Bracenica.
