Abstract: 

We revise the Panjange nigrifrons group in Borneo and document an unexpected diversity in western Sarawak forests. Five species occur within 80 km from Kuching, each species being known from its type locality only. Further species occur east until Niah, but the genus seems to be absent from Sabah. We contrast this with another pholcid genus (Aetana Huber, 2005) which is diverse in Sabah and west until Niah, but does not seem to occur in central and western Sarawak. Five species are newly described: Panjange kapit sp. nov., Panjange kubah sp. nov., Panjange niah sp. nov., Panjange pueh sp. nov., Panjange seowi sp. nov.. Panjange tahai (Huber, 2011) comb. nov. is transferred from Pholcus.
