Eirenis thospitis n. sp. is described from Van in eastern Turkey, where it was collected on a dry mountain steppe habitat about 2000 m above sea level. The large-sized new taxon belongs to the collaris-group and is characterized by 15 dorsals around midbody, a short tail and the lack of dark transverse bands on pileus and neck.
