Abstract:

Until recently, Malthonica lusitanica Simon, 1898 was the only species of the genus to be known from the Iberian Peninsula. Due to intensive fieldwork made in Portugal, a new undescribed species was found, here described as Malthonica oceanica sp. n. This work provides a taxonomic revision of the genus Malthonica Simon, 1898 in the Iberian Peninsula (excluding the Balearic Islands) and gives a first account on the potential distribution and phenology of both species.
