A new palinurid, Palaeopalinurus czarnieckii, is recorded from Upper Tithonian Štramberk-type limestones at Inwałd, southern Poland. The specimen shows better preservation anteriorly than available specimens of the type species of the genus. As fossil members of the Palinuridae in the Jurassic are scarce, the present specimen adds new important morphological and palaeogeographical data towards a better understanding of the evolution of the Achelata.
