ABSTRACT – A new species of the peacock spider genus Maratus, M. proszynskii, is described from north-eastern Tasmania, Australia. This species appears most similar to M. velutinus Otto and Hill, 2012, and brings to four the number of described species of Maratus known from Tasmania: M. pavonis (Dunn, 1947), M. harrisi Otto and Hill 2011, M. tasmanicus Otto and Hill 2013, and M. proszynskii sp. nov.
