Abstract

The genus Palliduphantes Saaristo & Tanasevitch, 2001 is revised in the fauna of Italy. For each species, all known localities, new records, and remarks are provided. A synonymy of P. garganicus (Caporiacco, 1951) with P. istrianus (Kulczyński, 1914) syn. n. is proposed on the basis of a morphological comparison. Two new species, P. murphyi sp. n. (♂♀) and P. robertsi sp. n. (♂♀), are described from southern Italy. The new species are named after the prominent British arachnologists John Murphy and Mike Roberts, recently passed away.
