ABSTRACT. New records of 210 linyphiid spiders from different regions of Russia are given. All records of Entelecara errata O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1913, E. media Kulczy?ski, 1887 or E. sombra (Chamberlin et Ivie, 1947) from Middle, East and South Siberia, as well as the Russian Far East actually concern E. erythropus (Westring, 1851). All records of Floronia exornata (L. Koch, 1878) in Russia are in fact those of F. bucculenta (Clerck, 1757). A new replacement name is proposed for Eldonia Tanasevitch, 1996, i.e. Eldonnia nom.n. (praeocc.: Eldonia Walcott, 1911, Echinodermata). The monotypic subgenus Sachaliphantes Saaristo et Tanasevitch, 2003 is elevated to full generic rank, stat.n. The following new synonyms and combinations are proposed (valid names on the right): Incestophantes obtusus Tanasevitch, 1996 = Incestophantes kochiellus (Strand, 1900), syn.n.; Pelecopsis baicalensis Marusik, Koponen et Danilov, 2001 = Pelecopsis parallela (Wider, 1834), syn.n.; Zornella orientalis Marusik, Buckle et Koponen, 2007 = Zornella cultrigera (L. Koch, 1879), syn.n.; Eldonnia kayacensis (Paik, 1965), comb.n. ex of Eldonia; Sachaliphantes sachalinensis (Tanasevitch, 1988), comb.n. ex of Mughiphantes Saaristo et Tanasevitch, 1999; Tanasevitchia strandi (Ermolajev, 1937), comb.n. ex of Minicia Thorell, 1875.
