The genus Pisanianura Rovereto, 1899, is described in the middle Miocene of the Paratethys for the first time, represented by Pisanianura craverii (Bellardi, 1873). The presence of the species in the Paratethys during the mid-Miocene Climate optimum, and the relations with the proto-Mediterranean Sea, are discussed.
