ABSTRACT. The species composition of the micronetine spider genus Maro O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1907 is reconsidered, the diversity being restricted to 13 species. The diagnosis of the genus is clarified and extended. A new monotypic genus, Boreomaro gen.n., is established for Maro borealis Eskov, 1991. In addition, further two species of Maro are preliminary transferred to Oreonetides Strand, 1901, i.e. Oreonetides amplus (Dondale et Buckle, 2001), comb.n. and O. bulbosus (Zhao et Li, 2014), comb.n.

KEY WORDS: Araneae, taxonomy, revision, Micronetinae, dwarf-spiders.
