A new species of the genus Potamophylax Wallengren 1891, P. asturicus sp. nov., from Spain is described and figured. This new species is a microendemic of the Spanish Cantabrian Mountains and is closely related to P. albergaria Malicky, 1976, from which it differs in a combination of genitalic features, especially those concerning the shape of segment IX and the inferior appendages. Additionally, we provide a taxonomic key to facilitate the identification of the males of all Iberian species of this genus.
