The 40 known species of the genus Xysticus C. L. Koch that occur in Canada are described and illustrated. Keys to both sexes are provided. Three new species, X. ampullatus, X. leechi, and X. winnipegensis, are described, two species, X. lutulentus Gertsch and X. nicholsi Gertsch, are synonymized with previously described ones, and two, X. ellipticus new name and X. alboniger new name, are transferred to Xysticus from another genus.
