ABSTRACT. A new monotypic genus, Notiogyne gen.n. (type species: Notiogyne falcata sp.n.), as well as Notioscopus sibiricus sp.n., Carorita sibirica sp.n. and Stemonyphantes parvipalpus sp.n. are described from Siberia and/or the Russian Far East. All records of Notioscopus jamalensis Grese, 1909, except for the original description, are based on misidentifications shown to actually concern N. sibiricus sp.n., whereas N. jamalensis Grese, 1909 is considered as a nomen dubium. The genus Carorita Duffey et Merrett, 1963 is here restricted to two species, one of them being new: C. sibirica sp.n. In fact both C. paludosa Duffey, 1971 and C. hiberna (Barrows, 1945) are not congeneric with the type species C. limnaea (Crosby et Bishop, 1927). A new genus, Karita gen.n., is erected for C. paludosa, while C. hiberna is provisionally transferred to Diplocentria Hull, 1911. The following new combinations are proposed: Carorita paludosa Duffey, 1971 = Karita paludosa (Duffey, 1971), comb.n.; Carorita hiberna (Barrows, 1945) = Diplocentria hiberna (Barrows, 1945), comb.n.
