ABSTRACT. This paper presents taxonomic-faunistic notes on 18 species of Philodromidae of Turkey. Artanes is re-elevated to generic rank, with 17 valid species to be included in it. Nine new combinations are proposed (all ex Philodromus): A. femurostriatus (Muster, 2009) comb.n., A. johani (Muster, 2009) comb.n., A. laricium (Simon, 1875) comb.n., A. maghrebi (Muster, 2009) comb.n., A. parietalis (Simon, 1875) comb.n., A. penteri (Muster, 2009) comb.n., A. pinetorum (Muster, 2009) comb.n., A. utotchkini (Marurik, 1991) comb.n. and A. validus (Gertsch, 1933) comb.n. Two species, Artanes bucaensis sp.n. (♀, from İzmir Province) and Thanatus nitidus sp.n. (♀, from Adıyaman and Gaziantep Provinces), are described as new. Four species, viz. Philodromus bistigma Simon, 1870, P. pulchellus Lucas, 1846, Thanatus fabricii (Audouin, 1827) and Thanatus sabulosus (Menge, 1875), are recorded new to the Turkish fauna. In total, the philodromid fauna of Turkey is currently known to contain 37 species.
