Lynceus brachyurus (Branchiopoda, Laevicaudata, Lynceidae) has been found in France for the first time. This species lives in various types of temporary ponds that depend on the ground water level. We provide some ecological, biogeographical, and morphological information about Lynceus brachyurus and indicate the occurrence of remarkable sympatric organisms, such as the endemic fairy shrimp Chirocephalus spinicaudatus (Branchiopoda, Anostraca). Those species confined to a restricted area are considered as seriously threatened because of the severe degradation of their biotope. Lynceus brachyurus (Branchiopoda, Laevicaudata, Lynceidae) a été signalé pour la première fois en France. Cette espèce est présente dans différentes mares temporaires dépendant du niveau d'eau souterrain. Nous présentons des informations écologiques, biogéographiques et morphologiques sur cette espèce et signalons la présence de remarquables espèces sympatriques comme l'endémique Chirocephalus spinicaudatus (Branchiopoda, Anostraca). Ces espèces restreintes à une zone limitée sont sérieusement menacées en raison d'une rapide dégradation du biotope.
