    Abstract

    The southern-temperate spider families Synotaxidae andMalkaridae are newly recorded from south-western Western Australia, eachfor a new species from the eastern Stirling Range National Park. The synotaxidgenus Calcarsynotaxus Wunderlich, previously described from south-easternQueensland, is represented in Western Australia by the new species C.benrobertsi. The sternoidine malkarid genus Perissopmeros Butler, previouslydescribed from south-eastern Australia, is represented in Western Australia bythe new species P. darwini. Species of Synotaxidae and Malkaridae are rare andhighly restricted in south-western Australia, known only from refugial, mesichabitats in montane areas of the Stirling Range National Park.
