Abstract

Four sympatric species of Misgolas Karsch are studied: M. hubbardi n.sp., M. dereki n.sp., M. kirstiae n.sp., and M. robertsi (Main & Mascord, 1974). The male paratype of the tube building spider M. robertsi (originally Dyarcyops robertsi) from Dorrigo, NSW is removed from that species and designated as the holotype of Misgolas mascordi n.sp. The species M. robertsi is reconsidered and its male is identified and described. Biological notes are included.
