Abstract

Some recent inferences on cybaeid spiders of Turkey are presented, including new and interesting locality records for Argyroneta aquatica (Clerck, 1757) and the first record of Cedicus israeliensis Levy, 1996 from Turkey. Genitalia photographs are provided for both species together with comments on their habitats and distributions. Some taxonomic notes are also included for C. israeliensis. In addition, presence of C. flavipes Simon, 1875 in Cyprus Island is confirmed and genitalia photographs are presented for comparison..
