ABSTRACT – A newly defined species-group within the jumping spider genus Maratus is identified, based on Maratus mungaich Waldock, 1995 and four new species: M. karrie sp. nov., M. melindae sp. nov., M. sarahae sp. nov. and M. caeruleus sp. nov. The group is defined by the male colour pattern of alternate transverse stripes on the dorsal abdominal surface and is restricted to south-western Australia.
