ABSTRACT. A preliminary grouping of Haplodrassus Chamberlin, 1922 is proposed and nine species groups are diagnosed. Three species, Haplodrassus dentatus Xu et Song, 1987, H. hatsushibai Kamura, 2007 and H. montanus Paik et Sohn, 1984 belonging to the montanus-group are revised and diagnostic key is provided. This species group is restricted to Far East Asia. Haplodrassus montanus previously known from Korea was found in Russia (Maritime Province) for the first time.
