A new freshwater ostracod Batucypretta paradoxa n.gen., n.sp. is described from Batu Caves, West Malaysia. Batucypretta n.gen. has a unique combination of characters hitherto unknown for any genus of the family Cypridopsidae Kaufmann, 1900. Batucypretta paradoxa n.gen., n.sp. is compared with cyprettine and cypridopsine genera and a new subfamily Batucyprettinae is established.
