Many Pseudamnicola species have been found in the Aegean Islands reported by Szarowska et al. (2015) and Radea et al. (2015), all regional endemic. We found an additional Pseudamnicola from the island of Limnos and described this species here as new for science. The holotype and two paratypes are depicted in addition to the penis, which is characteristic for the genus Pseudamnicola. A map of all hitherto mentioned Pseudamnicola taxa is given.
