Four species of the spiders of the families Eresidae, Araneidae, Thomisidae and Salticidae from eastern Asia are reported. Stegodyphus tibialis (O. PICKARD-CAMBRIDGE, 1869) (Eresidae) is newly recorded from northwestern Thailand. This record indicates the easternmost locality in the spiders of the genus Stegodyph us known at present. Three new species are described, that is, Cyrtarachne melanoleuca sp. nov. (Araneidae; from eastern Thailand), Sanmenia kohi sp. nov. (Thomisidae; from Singapore) and Onomustus kanoi sp. nov. (Salticidae; from the Ryukyu Islands, southern Japan). Sanmenia kohi sp. nov. is the second species of the genus hitherto known only from Japan and China. The peculiar jumping spider genus, Onomustus, is recorded as new to the Japanese fauna.
