Abstract

Updated information is given on the distribution of Chionea araneoides Dalman, 1816 and C. crassipes Boheman, 1846 in Norway. While C. araneoides is very common in southern Norway, there are only two records in northern Norway. C. crassipes has been taken numerously and in several localities in Finnmark, but in southern Norway, only a few individuals have been found in three alpine sites. These may represent relict populations. C. lutescens Lundström, 1907 is reported new to Sweden. Three samples of C. crassipes from Oulanka national park in Finland confirm the few earlier records from this country. Information is given on phenology, temperature and weather conditions, as well as some ecological aspects for C. araneoides in southern Norway, based on long term data.
