Spinnen-Neunachweise für Deutschland aus den Bayerischen Alpen (Araneae: Linyphiidae, Hahniidae, Gnaphosidae, Salticidae)
First records of five spiders from alpine habitats in Germany (Araneae: Linyphiidae, Hahniidae, Gnaphosidae, Salticidae)
The arachnofaunistic exploration of the German Alps is still in process. Recent investigations in supalpine and alpine habitats of Bavaria yielded 13 species new to Germany. For 5 taxa the collecting sites are reported, together with comments on general distribution and ecology. Cryphoeca lichenum nigerrima is a locally-endemic relict, which probably has survived glaciation on the nunatak system. Its distribution area is restricted to few mountain-ranges in the Northern Calcareous Alps, comprisin less than 2500 qkm. Two species, Erigone cristatopalpus und Talavera monticola, are endemic to the Alps and adjoining mountains. Micaria aenea shows a boeromontane disjunction. Heliophanus lineiventris is widely distributed in the southern Palearctic.
