While elaborating the unsorted Berlese samples collected in Portugal at the Hungarian Natural History Museum , two Prozercon Sellnick, 1943 species were found. One of them, Prozercon mahunkaiana n. sp., is new to science. The other species, Prozercon aristatus Athias-Henriot, 1961 is redescribed, and a description of the unknown male species is provided.
