ABSTRACT. Two new linyphiid spiders from the subfamily Erigoninae, Erigone acuta sp.n. (♂) and Gongylidiellum koshi sp.n. (♂ & ♀), are described from the Nepal Himalayas. Erigone acuta sp.n. somewhat resembles E. autumnalis Emerton, 1882, while G. koshi sp.n. is similar to G. nepalense Wunderlich, 1983. Both new species can easily be distinguished from their congeners mainly by certain details of the genitalic structure.

KEY WORDS: taxonomy, Arachnida, Erigoninae, Himalayas, mountain fauna.
