Abstract: Sac-spiders (Family: Clubionidae) are one of the common predators of insect pests in the cropfields and gardens. The spider s of the genus Clubiona are practically unknown of the Indian Fauna. Very little in formations are available on this group of spiders in Bangladesh (Chowdhury & Pal, 1984; Biswas, et. ai., 1993; Okuma, et. al., 1993; Begum & Biswas, 1997; Biswas & Raychaudhuri, 1994) although a great number of works took place in Indian Sub-continent and elsewhere (Platnick & Shadab, 1974a, b; Reiskind, 1969; Roberta, 1985; Chen & Zhang, 1989; Koh, 1989; Yaginuma, 1986).
