Abstract

Borrala and Pillara, two new genera of putative "stiphidiid" spiders from forest habitats in northern New South Wales, are described. They include eight new species: Borrala dorrigo, B. webbi, B. longipalpis, B. yabbra and Pillara karuah, P. coolahensis, P. macleayensis, P. griswoldi. Brief comments on characters and relationships are given. These genera form part of a generic group characterized by the presence of a palpal tegular lobe and grate-shaped tapeta in the posterior eyes.
