Based on examination of the male genitalia, in particular the structure of the inner sac, a new species of Pelor is described: Zabrus (Pelor) hiekei sp. n. (type locality: island of Kefalonia, Greece). The new species is an insular endemic and adelphotaxon of Z. (P.) incrassatus. The male genitalia of Z. (P.) incrassatus and Z. (P.) bischoffi are also illustrated and described. Three species are gathered in a distinct subgroup within Pelor. Zabrus (P.) incrassatus tuleschkovi MaA (TM) an, 1933 is treated as junior synonym of Z. (P.) incrassatus incrassatus (Ahrens, 1814).
