Echinothrombium spinosum (Canestrini, 1885) is redescribed based on female. Characteristics of larvae, described for the first time, deutonymphs and adults as well as data on biology are provided. Data on habitat specificity and phenology of the species as well as on developmental times of larvae are given. A female of E. spinosum, from which larvae were obtained by experimental rearing, has been designated as neotype. Key characters that allow to differentiate E. spinosum from E. rhodinum (C. L. Koch, 1837) pertain mainly to postlarval forms.
