Three new species of the family Oppiidae Grandjean, 1951 are described inthis paper, as result of study of the faunistic material collected from some Romanian caves: Lasiobelba (Lasiobelba) pontica n. sp., Lauroppia incognita n. sp. and Moritzoppia guanicola n. sp. The genus Lasiobelba is recorded for the first time in Romanian fauna, as well as Ramusella (Rectoppia) fasciata sahariensis (Hammer, 1975), for which some complementary characters are given.
