The objective was to register occurrence of the genus Charinus Simon, 1892, in two isolated fragments of Atlantic Rain Forest in Salvador; the Metropolitan Park of Pituacu with 382 ha and 19° "Batalhao de Cacadores" - Brazilian Army with about 166 ha. A total of 17 individuals have been collected through samples of leaflitter, all of them from genus Charinus. Although the reduced abundance, it was noted that the individuals of this sort can be found in urban fragments that show high degree of isolation and with historical of intense anthropic perturbation, however, the richness is rather low.
