This is a worldwide taxonomic revision of the genus Yllenus, with 65 valid species being diagnosed, figured and (re)described. A key to three species groups and distribution maps for all revised species are also provided. The ♂ neotype is designated for Yllenus albifrons (Lucas, 1846). Lectotypes are designated for the four following species: Aims albocinclus Kroneberg, 1885 (♀); Attus vittatus Thorell, 1875 ( ♂ ); YUenus hamifer Simon, 1895 (♀); Attulus validus Simon, 1889 (♂). Three species names are newly synonymized: Yllenus somonensis Proszyfiski, 1982 with Y. validus Simon, 1889; Yllenus israelensis Logunov, 1996 with Y. tschoni (Caporiacco, 1936); Yllenus probaius Wesolowska, 1996 with Y. mirandus Wesolowska, 1996. Three new combinations arc proposed: Yllenus auriceps (Denis, 1966) comb.n. (ex Attulus), Yllenus maoni- uensis (Liu. Wang et Peng, 1991) comb.n. (ex Philaeus) and Euophrys skalanicus (Dobroruka, 2003) comb.n. (ex Yllenus). Three specific names are treated as nomina dubia: Attus pusio Simon, 1871, Euophrys skalan­icus {Dobroruka, 2003) and Yllenus kronebergi Roewer, 1951. Twenty nine new species arc described: Ylle­ nus algarvensis sp.n. (♂; from Portugal); Y. aralicus sp.n. (♂♀; from the E. Caucasus and Middle Asia); Y. bakanas sp.n. (♂♀; from Kazakhstan); Y. bucharaensis sp.n. (♀; from Uzbekistan); Y. charynensis sp.n. (♀; from Kazakhstan); Y. dalaensis sp.n. (♂♀; from Kazakhstan); Y dunini sp.n. (♂♀; from Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan ); Y. erzinenis sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from S. Siberia and Mongolia); Y. gavdos sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from W. Mediter­ ranean); Y. guseinovi sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from the E. Caucasus and Middle Asia); Y. halugim sp.n. ( ♂ ; from Israel); Y. karakumensis sp.n. (♂♀; from Turkmenistan); Y. kamai sp.n. (♂♀; from NW India); Y. kononenkoi sp.n. (♂♀; from Kyrghyzstan); Y. kotchevnik sp.n. (; from Turkmenistan); Y. mirabilis sp.n. (♂; from Uzbeki­ stan and Turkmenistan); Y. murgabicus sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from Tajikistan); Y. nigritarsis sp.n. ( ♂ ; from Turkmen­ istan ); Y. nurataus sp.n. ( ♀ ; from Uzbekistan); Y. pamiricus sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from Tajikistan); Y. pseudobajan sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from SW China); Y. pseudovalidus sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan); Y. shakhsenem sp.n. (; from Turkmenistan); Y. tamdybulak sp.n. (♀; from Uzbekistan); Y. turkestanicus sp.n. (♂♀; from Middle Asia); Y. u iguricus sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from Kazakhstan); Y. uzbekistanicus sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan); Y. zhilgaensls sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from Kalmykia and Kazakhstan); Y. zyuzini sp.n. ( ♂♀ ; from Kaza­ khstan and Turkmenistan).

This work is intended for arachnologisls, mainly taxonomists, as well as for biogeographers, local biol­ ogists and naturalists.

Данная работа представляет собой мировую ревизию рода Yllenus , в которой 65 валидных видов описаны или переописаны и иллюстрированы. Составлен диагностический ключ для трех групп видов и даны карты распростра­ нения для всех видов. Выделен неотип для Yllenus albifrons ( Lucas , 1846). Обозначены лектотипы для четырех видов: Attus albocinctus Kroneberg , 1885; Attus vittatus Thorell , 1875; Yllenus hamifer Simon , 1895; Attulus validus Simon , 1889. Три вида синонимизированы: Yllenus somonensis Proszynski , 1982 с Y . validus Simon , 1889; Yllenus israelensis Logunov , 1996 с Y . tschoni ( Caporiacco , 1936); Yllenus probaius Wcsotowska , 1996 с Y . mirandus Wesolowska , 1996. Предложено три новью комбинации: Yllenus auriceps ( Denis , 1966) comb . n . ( ex Attulus ), Yllenus maoniuensis ( Liu , Wang et Peng , 1991) comb . n . ( ex Philaeus ) и Euophrys skalanicus ( Dobroruka , 2003) comb . n . ( ex Yllenus ). Три видовых названия трактуются как nomina dubia : Attus pusio Simon , 1871, Euophrys skalanicus ( Dobroruka , 2003) и Yllenus kronebergi Rocwer , 1951. Описано 29 новых видов.

Работа предназначена для арахнологов, главным образом таксономистов, а также для биогеографов, краеведов и натуралистов.
