ABSTRACT. Illustrated redescriptions of Pardosa abagensis Ovtsharenko, 1979, P. amentata (Clerck, 1757), P. caucasica Ovtsharenko, 1979, and P. lugubris (Walckenaer, 1802) are provided on the basis of specimens from Crimea and Caucasus. Expanded diagnosis for P. amentata and P. lugubris groups are suggested. P. abagensis is placed to separate species group; diagnosis for this group is provided. Phenology in Crimea is given for P. lugubris. The record of P. alacris (C.L. Koch, 1833) from Crimea was based on misidentification of P. lugubris.
