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.

Es wird eine neue Art der Familie Niphargidae, Niphargus zarosiensis sp. nov., aus einer Quelle am See von Zaros auf der Insel Kreta (Griechenland) beschrieben. Das ist der erste Nachweis aus der Gattung Niphargus von Süd-Kreta südlich des Ida Gebirges. Zwei weitere Niphargus-Arten von Kreta sind bekannt: Niphargus impexus Karaman, und Niphargus lakusici Karaman, . N. zarosiensis sp. nov. zeigt größere Ähnlichkeiten mit N. impexus als mit N. lakusici auf.
