The fossil spiders of the family Agelenidae s. str. in Baltic amber are revised, only two questionable genera of the subfamily Ageleninae are recognized: Agelena WALCKENAER 1805 and Tegenaria LATREILLE 1804. ?Tegenaria fragmentum n. sp. and ?Tegenaria obtusa n. sp. are described. Myro extinctus PETRUNKEVITCH 1958 is not a member of the family Agelenidae but probably of the Dictynidae s. I.: Cryphoecinae, Eocryphoeca is transferred to the Dictynidae s. I.: Cryphoecinae, Clythia KOCH & BERENDT 1854 and Thyelia KOCH & BERENDT 1854 are dubious genera and most probably not members of the Agelenidae. Cybaeinae and Textrix SUNDEVALL 1830 are unknown from Baltic amber.
