It contains the first record of Meconema meriodionale of the Iberian peninsula, the description of the male of Cyrtaspis tuberculata and a new subspecies of Canariola emarginata paynei . This last taxon was found in Tejeda mountains (Granada). A beautifully illustrated key to the Iberian Meconematinae is provided.
