Desmolorenzenia montana sp. n., from the rhizosphere of coffee-shrubs in the mountains of Nicaragua, is characterized by possessing 18 quadricomoid main body rings with inversion of direction in main ring 14, a rounded-rectangular head, a setal pattern that differs in males and females, location of the cephalic setae, presence of fine labial setae and striking differences in cuticle structure between adults and juveniles. The juveniles are the first ones described within the genus Desmolorenzenia. D. montana is identical with "Desmoscolex" from Guatemala and Desmolorenzenia sp. described from Surinam.
