New records of the extinct arachnid order Trigonotarbida are described from Upper Pennsylvanian (Moscovian: Bolsovian [ = Westphalian C]) spoil heaps associated with the Týnec mine near the village of Týnec in West Bohemia, Czech Republic. Three specimens are recorded, two of which are incomplete opisthosomas assigned to Trigonotarbida incertae sedis. A third fossil is more complete and is described here as Tynecotarbus tichaveki gen. et sp. nov. Its familial position is uncertain, but the presence of a weakly lobed carapace and finely tuberculate body ornament suggests affinities with the ‘eophrynid assemblage’ sensu Dunlop & Brauckmann (2006) and particularly the family Lissomartidae from Mazon Creek, USA. In order to be comprehensive in our study, we include a complete list of Czech trigonotarbids.
