ABSTRACT. A check-list of 159 species of the spider family Linyphiidae collected in the boreal part of the West Siberian Plain, Russia is compiled. One species, Carorita paludosa Duffey, 1971, is new to the Russian fauna, further 56 are new to the West Siberian list. Faunistic data and the distribution pattern of each of the species are documented. All previous records of Agyneta saxatilis (Blackwall, 1844) in Siberia, the Urals and the Caucasus are shown to actually concern A. mossica (Schikora, 1993).
