ABSTRACT. Four new species, i.e. Maro bureensis sp.n., M. khabarum sp.n., M. pansibiricus sp.n. and M. ussuricus sp.n., are described from Siberia and/or the Russian Far East. All records of M. flavescens (O.P.-Cambridge, 1873) in Asia, except for the original description, are shown to actually concern a new species, M. pansibiricus sp.n., while M. flavescens is depicted based on original and new material. A new synonym is established: Maro flavescens (O.P.-Cambridge, 1873) = Oreonetides confusus Wunderlich, 1995, syn.n. Some erroneous records of Maro are corrected and the distribution of some Maro species is mapped.
