Abstract

Laemostenus (Antisphodrus) portsensis n. sp. is described from five caves at Els Ports Natural Park. The new taxon can be distinguished from its geographical neighbours, L.   (A.) levantinus (Bolívar, 1919) and L. (A.) lassallei Mateu, 1989, by the shape of its head and pronotum, and particularly by the morphology of the male genitalia. The study includes some remarks about the habitat and ecology of the new species.
