Abstract

A key to the genera of Australian Zodariidae is provided. Four new genera are described. The first, Australutica n.gen., belongs in the subfamily Lachesaninae and is represented by the four new species: A. moreton (type species, male), A. xystarches (female), A. manifesta (male) and A. quaerens (male). The three other new genera belong in the Zodariinae, they are Australorena n.gen. with A. scenica (Koch) (type species), Chilumena n.gen. with C. reprobans n.sp. (male, type species) and C. baehrorum n.sp. (female), and Zillimata n.gen. with Z. scintillans (Picfemaleard-Cambridge) (type species). Two species, Habronestes calamitosus n.sp. (male, female) and Asceua expugnatrix n.sp. (male, female), are described in existing genera.
