ABSTRACT. The paper presents new taxonomic and faunistic data on 162 species of the Mediterranean jumping spiders (Salticidae). Three new species are described: Heliophanus haymozi sp.n. (♂♀; Spain, Portugal), Heliophanus sinaicus sp.n. (♂♀; Egypt, Sinai) and Salticus ressli sp.n. (♂; Turkey). Two new synonyms are proposed: Chalcoscirtus helverseni Metzner, 1999 with C. parvulus Marusik, 1991 and Salticus marenzelleri Nosek, 1905 with Salticus tricinctus (C.L. Koch, 1846). The synonymy of Evarcha syriaca Kulczyński, 1911 with Evarcha patagiata (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1872) is confirmed. Unknown sexes are described for seven species for the first time: Habrocestum latifasciatum (Simon, 1868) (♀), H. shulovi Prószyński, 2000 (♂), Heliophanus fuerteventurae Schmidt et Krause, 1996 (♀), H. ramosus Wesołowska, 1986 (♀), Icius crassipes (Simon, 1868) (♀), I. insolitus Alicata et Cantarella, 1994 (♀) and Salticus confusus Lucas, 1847 (♀). New faunistic records are provided for the following countries: Armenia (2 new species records), Cyprus (19), Egypt (4), Greece (1), Israel (1), Italy (1), Jordan (2), Libya (1), Morocco (4), Oman (1), Portugal (3), Spain (3), Syria (8), Tunisia (1), Turkey (17), Ukraine (1).
