Abstract

Two new genera of filistatid spiders from Australia are described. Wandella n.gen. is widely distributed in mainland Australia and includes eleven species: Wandella barbarella n.sp. (type species), W. australiensis (L. Koch, 1873) n.comb., W. orana n.sp., W. murrayensis n.sp., W. stuartensis n.sp., W. centralis n.sp., W. parnabyi n.sp., W. alinjarra n.sp., W. waldockae n.sp., W. pallida n.sp., W. diamentina n.sp. Yardiella n.gen. is a monotypic genus for Yardiella humphreysi, currently known only from North-West Cape Peninsula. The affinities of these genera with Pritha Lehtinen, and Indo-Pacific and Indian filistatid spider faunas are noted.
