Etymology. The species is named after the type locality, Bozdað Mountain.

Diagnosis. Zodarion bozdagensis  spec. nov. is a member of the germanicum  group and is similar to Z. bigaense Bosmans et al., 2014  . Males of the new species differ from those of Z. bigaense  by having a long tibial apophysis with 2 pointed teeth terminally, a slender tegular apophysis and the shape of the median apophysis. Females differ from those of Z. bigaense  by the larger, arched epigynal median plate and the more widely spaced spermathecae.
