Lanzaiopsis savinica was collected from the type locality. The shell as well as the sculpture of the proto- and teleoconch are presented. Mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) and nuclear histone 3 (H3) gene sequences were used to infer phylogeny. Lanzaiopsis clearly belongs to the Moitessieriidae but it is only distantly related to Lanzaia. Its sister clade is Moitessieria, while Bythiospeum is the sister clade of the one formed by Lanzaiopsis and Moitessieria. To our knowledge, Lanzaiopsis is the first representative of the moitessieriid non-Balkan clade whose range is so close to the Balkans.
