ABSTRACT. The validity of the genus Pulchellodromus Wunderlich, 2012 is discussed. A new combination is established: Pulchellodromus mainlingensis (Hu et Li, 1987) comb.n., ex Philodromus. Two species of Pulchellodromus are recorded from the Crimea for the first time: P. medius (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1872) and P. ruficapillus (Simon, 1885). The record of P. medius from the Crimea lies at the north-easternmost limit of the known species range. Both species are provided with diagnostic drawings, notes on their distribution, habitat preferences and phenology in the Crimea.
