During the spring of 2015, spiders of 175 species were collected in the south of Italy, in the border area of Basilicata and Calabria. A list of collected species is given. Cheiracanthium occidentale L. Koch, 1882, Nomisia excerpta (O.P.-Cambridge, 1872), Palliduphates byzantinus (Fage, 1931), Euryopis dentigera Simon, 1880 and Paidiscura dromedaria (Simon, 1880) are reported for the first time for Italy. Two species are new records for mainland Italy: Poecilochroa furcata Simon, 1914 and Xysticus siciliensis Wunderlich, 1995. The females of Xysticus siciliensis Wunderlich, 1995 and Pseudeuophrys perdifumo van Helsdingen, 2015 are described for the first time. Some species could not be identified as yet: Theridion spec., Spermophorides spec., Dysdera spec., Zelotes spec., Dipoena spec., Xysticus spec. and Pardosa spec. The first six might represent new species, and still have to be described.
