During the spring of 2011, spiders of 159 species were collected in the surroundings of Castellabate, Salerno, Italy. A list of collected species is given. Metopobactrus verticalis (Simon, 1881) and Euryopis sexalbomaculata (Lucas, 1846) are reported for the first time for Italy. Some species are new records for southern Italy: Dysdera granulata Kulczynski, 1897, Erigone autumnalis Emerton, 1882, Trichoncus ambrosii Wunderlich 2011, Leptorchestes peresi (Simon, 1868), Salticus unciger (Simon, 1868), Sitticus inexpectus Logunov & Kronestedt, 1997, Enoplognatha testacea Simon, 1884, Neottiura herbigrada (Simon, 1873), and Tmarus stellio Simon, 1875. Three species could not be identied as yet: Theridion spec., Pseudeuophrys spec., and Spermophorides spec. The latter two probably are new species and still have to be described. Illustrations are provided for Zelotes paroculus, Metopobactrus verticalis, Trichoncus sordidus, Enoplognatha testacea, and Euryopis sexalbomaculata.
