Abstract: Loops satisfying the identical relation $ (xy)(zx) = [x(yz)]x$ are known as Moufang loops. In the present paper considered is a class of loops satisfying the identical relation

$\displaystyle (1)\qquad (xy)(z{x^\lambda }) = [x(yz)]{x^\lambda },$

where $ {x^\lambda }$ is the image of $ x$ under some mapping $ \lambda $ of the loop into itself. Loops satisfying (1) are called $ M$-loops.

If $ \lambda :x \to {x^k},k$ an integer, (1) is called an $ {M_k}$-law. It is shown that every $ M$-loop is Moufang, and every $ {x^\delta } = {x^{ - 1}} \cdot {x^\lambda }$ belongs to the nucleus.

Furthermore, if a loop satisfies (1) so do all its loop-isotopes.
