From the East Alps, mainly Austria and Northern Italy, 7 rare Erigonine spiders are recorded: Caviphantes saxetorum (Hull), Hylyphantes nigritus (Simon), Mecopisthes nicaeensis (Simon), Metopobactrus rayi (Simon), Minicia candida Denis, Panamomops inconspicuus (Miller & Valesova), Sisicus apertus (Holm), together with notes on habitat, distribution and morphology. Taxonomy: The female of Erigone jaegeri Baehr is figured from Austria (Vorarlberg). Gongylidium soror n. sp., close to G. rufipes (L.), is described from Trentino and Lombardia. The new combination Wiehlenarius tirolensis (Schenkel) (from Asthenargus) is established, W. tirolensis from the East Alps and from Greece (Mt. Olympus 2700 m) apparently being congeneric with W. boreus Eskov from E-Siberia.
