Abstract: Diacyclops alticola, a poorly known cyclopoid, is redescribed on specimens from a shallow pool near Lake Rang-Kul in the Pamirs (Tajikistan) at an altitude of 3700 m. Synonymy of D. alticola Kiefer, 1935 and D. longifurcus Shen et Sung, 1963 is proposed. A key to the species of the genus Diacyclops Kiefer, 1927 in Central Asia is presented.
