Leptochiton serenae n.sp. is described from Early Pleistocene clayey deposits at Cutrufiano and Isola del Campo,near Lecce (Southern Italy). The new species has a distinctive sculpture on the tegmentum. It was compared with the five species of Leptochiton known from the Pleistocene of Southern Italy, and with two living North Atlantic species, Leptochiton asellus (Gmelin , 1791) and Leptochiton arcticus 8G.O.Sars, 1878), sharing some similarities with the new species.
