Maculoncus parvipalpus Wunderlich, 1995  : 647, f. 12‒19 (♂♀)

Material. ISRAEL: Haifa, 31.xii.2010 ( YM) – 1♀ ( ZMMU)  

Comments. This species was previously only known from Greece (Peloponnese Peninsula and Naxos Island) ( Wunderlich, 1995). It can be easily recognised by the pattern on carapace ( Figs 1 View Figure 1 a-b) and abdomen ( Fig1 1a, c View Figure 1 ), long hairs covering the abdomen ( Fig. 1a View Figure 1 ) and the shape of the copulatory organs. It was recorded in Israel for the first time. Haifa is the south-easternmost record of M. parvipalpis   .
