ABSTRACT. Here I report the result of examining the syntypes of Cheiracanthium orientale Kulczyński, 1885, which was described from Kamchatka and later synonymized with C. erraticum (Walckenaer, 1802). This synonymy, which has been overlooked in several catalogs, is confirmed here. Distribution records of Ch. erraticum in northeastern Siberia are mapped.

KEY WORDS: Araneae, Asia, distribution records, synonym, syntype.
