The present paper deals with five new species of spiders, one of which forms the type of a new genus in the Oonopidae. I have adopted the scheme of classification proposed by Professor A. Petrunkevitch of Yale University in his Systema Aranearum, and have also made use of his helpful terminology and notation of spines, a full explanation of which is given in his paper on the Arachnida from Pamama. Unless otherwise indicated all descriptions have been made from specimens preserved in alcohol. Includes diagrams.
