ABSTRACT: Eight species and one genus are synonymized: Micryphantes miniatus Grube, 1861, syn.n. = Hypomma bituberculatum (Wider, 1834); Linyphia melanopleuros Grube, 1861, syn.n. = Megalepthyphantes nebulosus (Sundevall, 1830); Linyphia albomaculata Grube, 1861, syn.n. = Neriene emphana (Walckenaer, 1841); Pardosa bukukun Logunov et Marusik, 1995, syn.n. = P. hanrasanensis Jo et Paik, 1984; Attus dimidiatus Grube, 1861, syn.n. = Carrhotus xanthogramma (Latreille, 1819); Phoroncidia minschana (Schenkel, 1936), syn.n. = Ph. pilula (Karsch, 1879); Steatoda amurica (Strand, 1907), syn.n. = S. albomaculata (De Geer, 1778); Attus fuscostriatus Grube, 1861, syn.n. = Neon reticulatus (Blackwall, 1853); Orientopus Eskov, 1992, syn.n. = Silometopoides Eskov, 1990. A new status (genus) is suggested for Theoneta Eskov et Marusik, 1991 earlier considered a subgenus of Microneta Menge, 1869 with two species M. (T.) aterrima Eskov et Marusik, 1991 and M. (T.) saaristoi Eskov et Marusik, 1991. Pardosa hanrasanensis Jo et Paik, 1984 is removed from synonymy with P. bifasciata (C.L. Koch, 1834). Four names are removed from synonymy with Sitticus avocator (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1885): Attus viduus Kulczyński, 1895, Sitticus numeratus Bцsenberg et Strand, 1906, S. sibiricus Roewer, 1951 and S. paraviduus Schenkel, 1963; all are synonymized with S. distinguendus (Simon, 1868).
