ABSTRACT. The main somatic and genital diagnostic characters are summarized for the Himalayan genus Hubertella Platnick, 1989 and the Palaearctic East Asian genus Oia Wunderlich, 1973. Two new species, Hubertella montana sp.n. and Oia kathmandu sp.n., are described from Nepal. Both species are most similar to their Himalayan congeners, i.e. H. thankurensis (Wunderlich, 1983) and O. sororia Wunderlich, 1973, respectively, but are clearly distinguished by the structural details of the genitalia. A new diagnostic drawing of the palpal structure is provided for H. thankurensis for comparative purposes, based on the holotype.

KEY WORDS: taxonomy, spiders, Arachnida, Erigoninae, new species, mountain fauna.
