ABSTRACT. A new species, Euophrys friedmani sp.n., is described based on both sexes from the western Negev Desert. It is smallest of the Mediterranean Euophrys species. The male of the new species has very large base of embolus and lacks a retrolateral tibial apophysis. The female differs from all congeners by very long copulatory ducts forming about 4 loops. A small note is provided for E. gambosa (Simon, 1868) about size of its males.

KEY WORDS: Araneae, jumping spider, Negev.
