Distribution: The only record of this species from Ukraine (Freiberg [Фрейберг], 1897 from modern Dnipropetrovsk Area) is mentioned in the Catalogue of spiders of the former USSR (Mikhailov, 1997) as doubtful. Freiberg’s collection is lost, and the occurrence of H. setiger in Ukraine has not been proved by later studies.
