ABSTRACT. A new erigonine genus, Protosintula gen.n., is described based on the type species Protosintula tenebrosus sp.n. from Israel. The genus seems to be especially similar to the genus Sintula Simon, 1884, but differs by the unmodified cymbium and a peculiar leg chaetotaxy pattern.

KEY WORDS: taxonomy, Arachnida, Middle East, Levant.
