A new fossil species of the genus Hemicycla from La Gomera is described. It was found in Quaternary deposits near Hermigua in the northeast of the island. The shells are considerably larger than those of all other Hemicycla species from the Canary Islands. Hemicycla montefortiana spec. nov. shows a strongly malleated shell sculpture whereas the shell surface is smooth.
