In the present paper two new species of harpacticoid copepods are described from east Serbia, Bor region, Vodena cave. Both species were collected in small puddles at the end of the cave. They are real troglobionts. Parastenocaris serbica sp. n. (Parastenocarididae) belongs to the "minuta"-group of the genus. It has no close relatives among the recent species and, together with P nolli Kiefer, 1938 (which is removed from the "proserpina"-group), it enlarges the scope of the "minuta"-group. Bryocamptus (Rheocamptus) borus sp. n. (Canthocamptidae) belongs to the "pygmaeus-typhlops"-group of its genus. It is remarkably similar to B. (R.) typhlops (Mrázek, 1893), but there are clear differential characteristics. Also, it is similar to B. tauricus Borutzky, 1930 and B. bispinosus Borutzky, 1940 from Crimea, as well as to B. innominatus Borutzky, 1940 from the Caucasus.
