Genus Crinitodiscus (Sellnick, 1931) is redefined, and the subgenera Crinitodiscus s.s. and Orientidiscus n. subgen. are described and compared. The two subegenera may be distinguished both by morphological features and by their geographical distributions. Two new Orientidiscus species are described. At present, Crinitodiscus appears to be a peculiar genus, not related to other known european higher Uropodina.
