This paper describes Peripodisma llofizii n. sp., discovered during the summer of 2014 on Mount Llofiz around 1700 m above sea level, located in the North of Erind village in the district of Gjirokastra, in Albania. Very similar to P. tymphii Willemse, 1972, and known in the region of Epirus in Greece, up to and slightly beyond the border in Albania, it nevertheless differs from the latter by obvious morphological characters such as the colour of its hind tibia, the shape of the genital plate of the female, the supra-anal plate, the furculae and several parts of the male phallic complex.
