Abstract
    A new genus of the Diplopeltidae, Morlaixia gen, n., is described; species are characterized by an asymmetrical anterior end, which is caused by the subventral position of the mouth opening and the buccal cavity; that feature is unique for the group. Two new species, M , contusa sp. n. and M. obscura sp. n., are described from fine sands and silty sediments in the Bay of Morlaix.
