Euophrys lanigera correctly placed on the Dutch Checklist (Arachnida, Salticidae). Although E. lanigera (Simon, 1871) is mentioned on the ‘List of spiders actually or potentially occurring in the Netherlands’ up till now it had not been found. The species is reported here to be quite common in the author’s home and on its outside walls near the centre of Nijmegen, Province of Gelderland, the Netherlands. The identification and some ecological and behaviouristic observations are discussed.
