Two new species of the spider family Sparassidae are described from China: Sinopoda angulata (female; Hubei Prov.) and Sinopoda fasciculata (male; Guizhou Prov.). Pseudopoda sp. cf. exiguoides (Song & Zhu 1999) is recorded from Hunan Prov. (females). One undetermined Pseudopoda species is recorded from Sichuan Prov. (female). Heteropoda venatoria (Linnaeus 1767) is recorded from Guangdong Prov. and Yunnan Prov. respectively. Micrommata virescens (Clerck 1757) is recorded for the first time in Jilin Province. Two males of Olios sp. are recorded from Jiangsu Prov. and Hunan Prov. respectively, probably conspecific with Olios tiantongensis (Zhang & Kim 1996). One female of Olios sp. is recorded from Yunnan Prov, probably conspecific with Olios menghaiensis (Wang & Zhang 1990). Olios sanguinifrons (Simon 1906) COMB. NOV. is transferred from the genus Eusparassus to Olios. The female is described for the first time. Genitalia of all species are illustrated.
