The mtDNA-16S rRNA gene partial sequences were amplified and sequenced from 26 species representing 4 subfamilies and 6 genera of Lycosidae in China. Aligning with 16S rRNA sequences of 2 species (Pardosa Lycosidae) in North America from GenBank, and selecting 1 species Angela limbata (Agelenidae) as outgroup from China, we constructed a matrix of 29 DNA sequences. The phylogenetic trees of the Lycosidae were constructed by using the method of Bayesian and Maximum Parsimony (NIP). The results indicate that Wadicosa has the closest phylogenetic relationship with Pardosa. Pardosa and Wadicosa form a monophyletic group and this result supported that the two genera should be merged into one subfamily. the molecular phylogeny of 6 genera of Lycosidae is (Pirata (Hippasa (Trochsa + Arctosa (Pardosa + Wadicosa)))).
