Latin diagnosis, description, drawings, and micrographs of new for science species from genus Thorakomonas Korschikov - Th. cruciformis Demchenko sp. nov. are presented. It was found in several ephemeral water bodies in the city of Kiev. The variability of morphological characteristics of new species and differences from known species of this genus and related genera, as well as the taxonomical value of some features within the range of genera Thorakomonas Korschikov, Pteromonas Seligo, and Dysmorphococcus Takeda are discussed. Several nomenclatural combinations relating to the transfer of Pteromonas robusta Korschikov and Dysmorphococcus feldmanii (Bourr.) H. Ettl to the genus Thorakomonas as Th. robusta (Korschikov) Demchenko comb. nov. and Th. feldmanii Bourr. are proposed.
