A new clausiliid species, in a newly proposed genus, Probosciphaedusa mulini gen. et sp. nov. is described from south-eastern Hubei, China. The new taxon is characterised by having thick and cylindrical apical whorls, a strongly expanded lamella inferior and a lamella subcolumellaris that together form a tubular structure at the base of the peristome, and a dorsal lunella connected to both the upper and the lower palatal plicae. Illustrations of the new species are provided.
