Cinclidotus confertus Lüth sp. nov. is described and illustrated from Vikos-Aoos National Park in northwest Greece. It is a compact, brownish- to blackish-green plant with densely set leaves. In its papillose and reddish-brown peristome teeth the new species resembles C. mucronatus (Brid.) Mach., but differs in its entirely smooth laminal cells and shorter setae, 4-5 mm long.
