Abstract: In 1998-99, spiders of the mainly Siberian genus Wubanoides Eskov, 1986 were found in a block field in the Harz mountains, Lower Saxony, Germany. They resemble W. uralensis (Pakhorukov, 1981), but appear taxonomically distinct when compared with paratypes of this species. Up to the clarification of their taxonomic status, they are announced here as W. uralensis. Short notes are given on biology and ecology, the questionable status of the species as a "glacial relict" is discussed.
