ABSTRACT. A new spider species, Lathys mallorcensis sp.n. is described from Majorca. The species seems confined to hypogean environments of high ground karst landscapes of the Tramuntana mountain range. The new species belongs to the L. stigmatisata group and differs from its Mediterranean sibling species by its small size, shape of terminal part of conductor and choice of habitat. The occurrence of Lathys species in the Balearic Islands is reviewed.

KEY WORDS: Aranei, spiders, stigmatisata-group, new species, description.
