A new genus and species, Kerkiratrobius rosanae n. gen., n. sp., is described and figured from males collected in the Corfu Island, Greece. The new genus has a special feature in its genitalia which permits its separation from all previously known genera of the order, and particularly other genera of the subfamily Petrobiinae to which it belongs.
