          Abstract

          The species of the genus Micatagla Argaman (Bradynobaenidae: Apterogyninae) in Saudi Arabia are reviewed. A single species, M.antropovi Pagliano, 2002, has previously been reported from Abu Arish (Jazan region, Saudi Arabia). Four new species based on females are described and illustrated in the present paper: M.fuscogaster sp. nov. and M.reemae sp. nov. (Garf Raydah Natural Reserve, Asir region), M.saudita sp. nov. (Wadi Hanifah, Riyadh region) and M.similis sp. nov. (Shada Al-Ala Natural Reserve, Al-Baha region). An illustrated key to the females and an annotated faunistic list of all Micatagla species of Saudi Arabia are also provided.
