A new atrypid Waiotrypa sulcicarina gen. et sp. n. from the late Frasnian of the Holy Cross Mountains is proposed. The new genus is close to Iowatrypa Copper, 1973 from which it differs mainly in having a keeled pedicle valve and sulcate brachial valve. Waiotrypa is one of the latest atrypids prior to extinction of the order at the end of the Frasnian.

Key words: Atrypida, Brachiopoda, Late Devonian, Poland.
