Hahnia nava (Westring, 1851)  

Hahnia carmelita Levy, 2007  : 15, f. 40‒41 (holotype ♀ from Ramat HaNadiv, Mt. Carmel, Israel (HUJ) examined). Syn. n.

Hahnia nava: Roberts, 1998: 271   , f. (♂♀)

For a complete synonym listing and references, see the World Spider Catalog (2015).

Material. ISRAEL: ‘ En Ya’akov, 14‒19.i.2007 (I. Shtirberg) – 2♂, 1♀ ( TAU)   ; same locality, 10.xi.2006 (I. Shtirberg) ‒ 1♀ ( TAU)   ; Haifa, university campus , 450 m, 29.xii.2010 ( YM) – 1♀ ( ZMMU)   ; Matta, 13‒18.i.2007 (I. Shtirberg) – 1♂ ( TAU)   ; Adullam, 10.iii.2008 (O. Skutelsky) ‒ 1♂, 1♀ ( TAU)   .

Comments. Examination of the holotype female of H. carmelita   revealed that the endogyne is identical to that of the well-known and widely distributed Transpalaearctic H. nava   . Therefore, the two names are synonymised here. It appears that records of this species from Israel are the southernmost for the entire range of the species.
