A new species of the family Niphargidae, Niphargus zarosiensis sp. nov., is described from samples collected in 2016 from a spring draining into Lake Zaros on Crete Island, Greece. This is the first record of the genus Niphargus from a spring on Crete south of the Ida Mountains. Two other Niphargus-species on Crete are known: Niphargus impexus Karaman, and Niphargus lakusici Karaman, . N. zarosiensis sp. nov. is closely related to N. impexus described from northern Crete. The differences to N. lakusici are more obvious.
