Abstract

The Dysderidae fauna of the Maltese Islands is reviewed. Dysdera kollari Doblika, 1853, D. lagrecai Alicata, 1964 and Harpactea sicula Alicata, 1966 are recorded for the first time from the Maltese archipelago, and the latter two species are recorded for the first time outside Italian territories. Harpactea corticalis (Simon, 1882) is removed from the Maltese dysderid fauna list. Distributional notes for all four species present in the Maltese Islands are provided, with the first records of Dysderidae from Comino.
