Abstract

Two related desid spider genera, Canala n.gen. from New Caledonia and Colcarteria n.gen. from eastern Australia, are described. Epimecinus magnus Berland, the type species of Canala, is diagnosed and figured. Epimecinus longipes Berland is removed from synonymy with E. magnus and referred to Canala. Its male is described. Newly described species are Canala poya, Colcarteria carrai, C. yessabah and C. kempseyi. The desine species Forsterina koghiana n.sp. from New Caledonia is described.
