The male of S. rufescens (Mello-Leitao, 1940) comb. n. and the female of S. milleri comb. n. are described for the first time. Three new species are described: Sparianthina adisi sp. n., S. deltshevi sp. n., and S. saaristoi sp. n. The male and female of Anaptomecus longiventris Simon, 1903 arc described for the first time and the species is recorded from Panama for the first time.
