Abstract

Therlinya, a new genus of cribellate amaurobioid spiders from eastern Australia, readily distinguished by its arched, unpatterned carapace, is described. It includes eleven new species: Therlinya kiah, T. foveolata, T. bellinger, T. horsemanae, T. wiangaree, T. ballata, T. vexillum, T. lambkinae, T. angusta, T. monteithi, and T. nasuta. All are forest dwelling species that build small sheet webs in sheltered microhabitats. Distribution maps and comments on relationships and biology are given.
