The ground spider Poecilochroa taborensis Levy, 1999 previously known only from Israel is reported here from Greece and Cyprus. The relationship with the closely related Trichothyse africana (Tucker, 1923) is discussed. Macarophaeus sabulum Wunderlich, 2011 was found to be conspecific with P. taborensis and views on the placement of the species in Poecilochroa or Macarophaeus are presented.
