On a miniature subspecies of Oxychilus (Schistophallus) minoicus Riedel (Gastropoda Pulmonata: Zonitidae) Oxychilus (Schistophallus) minoicus pumilo subsp. nov. is described as a miniature of O. (S.) minoicus from a single locality in Crete, after conchological and anatomical characters. Because specimens that are transitional between these dwarf specimens and the surrounding populations of the nominate subspecies are unknown, the subspecific status of these two forms remains to be studied in detail. The anatomical data are insufficient because only very few specimens of both taxa could be dissected.
