Abstract
    Klieopsis n. gen. is here described to comprise the species Cypridopsis horai Klie, reported from India. The new genus is characterized by an aberrant inner list on the RV, by a furca with a cylindrical trunk and by the reduction of two claws (G2 and Gm) on the A2 to short setae. After re-examination of the type materials, Cypridopsis caerulescens Klie from Kenya is synonymized with K. horai, which is here furthermore reported for the first time from Israel (surroundings of the Dead Sea). The latter specimens are extensively described, and a discussion on the taxonomic position of the new genus is offered. An apparently similar species from Sardegna, Cypridopsis thermarum Tagliasacchi-Masala, 1968, is here formally referred to Plesiocypridopsis.
