A new species of inarticulate brachiopods, Discinisca zapfei sp.n., is established for specimens collected by the late Professor Helmuth ZAPFE from the Zlambach Formation (Upper Triassic, Norian to Rhaetian) of the Northern Calcareous Alps (Austria). The collection, although small, offers a good insight into the morphology of both the dorsal and the brachial valve of the shells, as well as into their mode of growth in clusters.
