<p>Of the 11 Tegenaria species known from Switzerland, T. mirifica and T. tridentina can only be found in the Alps. Because specimens of the rare species, T. mirifica. are needed for a taxonomic project, a three day collecting expedition has been carried out. Due to the very exact descriptions of the finding site in Ramosch (Grisons), several specimens of the wanted species could he found. At other sites only specimens of T. tridentina and T. silvestris have been collected. This result shows the importance of exact description of finding sites, both geographically and ecologically.</p>
