    Bryocamptus (Bryocamptus) gauthieri (Roy, 1924), previously known from two localities in the Maghreb only, is now reported from several localities in the East-Mediterranean region: Lebanon, Cyprus and Greece. The specimens were found in material from Berlese extractions of soil samples and moss. The type material appears to be lost, but specimens assumed to originate from the initial collection were located in the Chappuis collection at Cluj (Romania). B. gauthieri is redescribed and the original description is corrected and amended. The variability of the leg armature and ornamentation is emphasized. Within the current systematic outline of the genus Bryocamptus s. str., B. gauthieri takes and intermediary position between the pygmaeus and the typhlops species sub-groups.
