Heteropoda dagmarae Jäger & Vedel 2005 

Material examined. 1 male ( SMF 56655), L6, sweeping, PJ 2418 (pedipalpi in formol)GoogleMaps  . 2 females ( MNHN), L16, PJ 2337-2338  . 1 female ( SMF 56699), L7, banana plant, in bent leaf, at night, by hand, 10.111.2006, PJ 2504, SD 514GoogleMaps  .

The female specimens represent the first records for the provinces Luang Prabang and Houaphan. It seems that the species occurs also in degraded habitats as banana plantations and do not have special ecological needs except for a more or less rich foliage layer in shrubs and trees.
