    Abstract

    Swolnpes, a new genus in the mygalomorph spider familyNemesiidae, is described from the Great Victoria Desert and the MorganRanges in south-eastern Western Australia. Swolnpes includes two new species,S. darwini (type species) and S. morganensis, both of which are currently knownfrom males only. Based on the configuration of the male pedipalp the genus istentatively placed into the tribe Anamini Simon 1889, although some somaticcharacters, such as the lack of a tibial spur and the lack or low number ofmaxillary cuspules which are restricted to a narrow band, are reminiscent ofthe genus Teyl Main 1975 (tribe Teylini Main 1985).
