Six species of the genus Otacilia are reported from Japan. A new species is described from Okinoerabu-jima Island, Kagoshima Prefecture, southwest Japan under the name of Otacilia stella. Three species, Otacilia komurai (Yaginuma 1952), O. taiwanica (Hayashi & Yoshida 1993) and O. vulpes (Kamura 2001) are transferred from the genus Phrurolithus. Although the genus Otacilia has been placed under Liocranidae, it is treated under Corinnidae in this study.
