A new species of the family Teneriffiidae, Teneriffia sebahatae sp. nov., is described. It was collected on the sea shore of Antalya, Turkey. It is distinguished from other species in this genus by the absence of “clasps” on the venter of the gnathosoma, fewer ventral setae and the number of solenidia on tarsi III and IV. A revised key to all the species of the genus Teneriffia is provided. The new species represents the first report of Teneriffiidae from Turkey
