During a short visit to the nature reserve De Havelterberg’ in our northern province Drenthe, famous for its mysterious tombs consisting of huge granite stones, the so-called ‘Hunebedden’, we encountered Erigonella hiemalis (Blackwall, 1841) (Araneae: Linyphiidae) a new species for the Netherlands. We also found Linyphia tenuipalpis a species hirtherto unknown for Drenthe. But despite intensive search my wife and I did not succeed in finding Hyptiotes paradoxus or Argiope bruennichi two species we certainly had expected in this area.
