Phyllodiaptomus christineae n.sp. is described from Thailand. It stands out, in the male, by the shape and the armature of the second exopodite-segment of the right P5 and by the elongate apical process and ornamentation of the second exopodite-segment of the left P5; in the female, by the reduced lateral wings of the fifth pediger, and by the form of the genital somite. Together withP. blanci, P. tunguidus andP. longipes, the new species constitutes the blanci-group, here raised to the level of a subgenus (Phyllodiaptomus s.s.) with representatives in Central Asia, China, Borneo and Thailand. A second subgenus (Ctenodiaptomus subgen. nov.) is created to accommodate the four Asian species of the annae-group.
