ABSTRACT. The poorly known mygalomorph Raveniola fedotovi (Charitonov, 1946) is redescribed based on the lectotype and paralectotypes (designated herein) and an additional material from Uzbekistan; the female of this species is described for the first time. It can be distinguished from other known Central Asian congeners by the presence of a triangular keel on the embolus and by a specific shape of the Y-shaped spermathecae, as well as the complete lack of posterior median spinnerets.

KEY WORDS: Spiders, Araneae, Mygalomorphae, Central Asia, Uzbekistan.
