ABSTRACT. A new monotypic genus, Parvunaria gen.n., with P. birma sp.n. as the type species, is described from highlands of western Myanmar. The new genus is characterized by both embolus and radix being highly peculiar and tiny, while the convector highly sclerotized and well-developed. Habitually, the new genus is similar to Nasoona Locket, 1982 and Nasoonaria Wunderlich et Song, 1995, but differs clearly by the palpal conformation and chaetotaxy. A check-list of the linyphiid fauna of Myanmar is compiled, being also supplied with detailed localities and global distribution patterns.

KEY WORDS: taxonomy, spiders, Arachnida, Erigoninae, southeastern Asia.
