Clubiona pseudosimilis Mikhailov, 1990: 311   , Figs 16–20 View FIGURES 16–19 View FIGURES 20–25 . Holotype ♂ and paratype ♀ from Georgia, Lagodekhi Reserve; several more paratypes from Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan; ZMMU, not examined

Diagnosis. Males of C. pseudosimilis   differ from the closely related C. neglecta   by the considerably shorter embolus ( Fig. 106 View FIGURES103–110 ). Females are more close to C. similis   and differ by the larger spermathecae ( Figs 109, 110 View FIGURES103–110 ). Description. See Mikhailov, 1990.

Previous citations in the Maghreb. None.

New records. AFRICA: ALGERIA: Boumerdes: Réghaia, estuary of Oued Réghaia , 1 ♀, pitfalls in Carex   vegetation, 13.VI.1988, R. Bosmans leg. (CRB).  

EUROPE: PORTUGAL: Setubal: Lagoa de Melides , 1 ♂ 2 ♀♀, litter in dunes along river mouth, 15.IV.2013, R. Bosmans leg. (CRB).  

Ecology. C. pseudosimilis   was only collected once in April in the estuary of the Oued Réghaia near Alger in Algeria.

Distribution. C. pseudosimilis   is cited here for the first time in the Maghreb in Algeria and for the first time in Portugal, considerably enlarging its distribution area. At both localities it was collected in river mouths. Until recently this species was only known from Caucasian countries: Armenia, Azerbaidjan and Georgia ( Mikhailov 1990) and the Krasnodar and Kabardino-Balkaria regions of Russia. ( Mikhailov 1992, 2003). Bosmans et al. (2013) expanded the distribution area to Greece, Crete.
