The specimens from Laos represent the first record for this country. Moreover, it is firstly shown ( Fig. 7View Figs. 6 - 7) that specimens of Argyrodes  sp. live in webs of Herennia multipuncta  . In Singapore, only one of about 100 webs of Herennia multipuncta  (most were juvenile) contained an Argyrodes  specimen (Kuntner & Court, pers. comm, in 2007).
