Napaeus lichenicola sp. nov. from Jandia, Fuerteventura Island, is described, the main differences with the nearest species are discussed and data on distribution and conservation status are presented. The functional meaning of the epiphallar caecum and a chambered epiphallar region are inferred for the accommodation, respectively, of the spermatophoral spurlike hook and sharp-pointed denticles.
