<p><i>Pomatoschistus anatoliae</i> sp. n. is described from estuary of Göksu River on the Mediterranean coast of the Anatolia. It is distinguished from its congeners by the suborbital papilla pattern, meristic, and ecological features. DNA barcoding based on COI sequences revealed that there is a high nucleotide sequence divergence to the nearest neighbour. Kimura’s two parameter distances between <i>P. anatoliae</i> sp. n. and other species of <i>Pomatoschistus</i> and <i>Knipowitchia</i> have found to be at least 5.1%.</p> <p><a href="http://www.zoobank.org/urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:4592CF50-07B5-4C25-892F-5D009057675B" target="_blank">http://www.zoobank.org/urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:4592CF50-07B5-4C25-892F-5D009057675B</a></p>
