Abstract:
Four species of Zodariidae new to science are described from Mkomazi Game Reserve in northern Tanzania; Diores similis sp. n., Dusmadiores laminatus sp. n., Heradida minutissima sp. n. and Ranops dippenaarae sp. n. In addition, the female of Diores murphyorum Jocqué, 1990 is described for the first time. The reasons for the apparent abundance and high diversity of zodariids in Mkomazi are briefly discussed.
