The redescription of the type material of this species allows to detail its peculiar morphological characteristics and to define its phylogenetic position within the genus Cryptocandona. C. brehmi displays closer phylogenetic affinities with the epigean species C.reducta (Alm, 1914), widely distributed in Europe. Both species form a lineage which appears more primitive than the other representatives of Cryptocandona. C. brehmi could belong to a psychrophilous fauna which spread from Europe toward eastern Asia during the Pleistocene.
