An illustrated redescription of Tegenaria lapicidinarum Spassky, 1934 based on specimens from Crimea is given. The lectotype of T. lapicidinarum is designated (deposited in the Zoological Institute RAN, St. Petersburg, Russia). The holotype and paratype of T. spasskyi Guryanova, 1992 were examined. T. spasskyi Guryanova, 1992 syn. n. is synonymized with T. lapicidinarum Spassky, 1934. T. lapidicinarum (lapsus calami), the wrong writing of T. lapicidinarum, is corrected. T. lapicidinarum is distributed from the Southern coast of Crimea at the south to Chernigiv Polissya (zone of nemoral forests) at the north; from Dnepr left bank at the west to Prikubanskaya lowland in the east. The peak of abundance and activity of T. lapicidinarum mature specimens is in May-June. The diagnostic drawings of male palps of T. taurica Charitonov, 1947 are presented. The unusually high individual variability of body measurements and armature of legs in T. lapicidinarum is found. The number and location of spines on legs cannot be used for distinction of species of the genus Tegenaria Latreille, 1804 (as in the genus Amaurobius C. L. Koch, 1837).
