A new species of Penaeidae, Bylgia anjobea n. sp., is described from the Upper Jurassic Solnhofen lithographic limestones (Painten Formation, Kimmeridgian/Tithonian boundary beds) of the Öchselberg quarry near Breitenhill, southern Franconia. The new species differs from other species of this genus mainly in the armature of the rostrum in combination with the shape of the chelae of the third pereiopods.
