Abstract. A taxonomic revision of the genus Rhodania is given, including the original key for all 5 nominal species of the genus and a figure of the type species, Rh. porifera Goux, 1934, from Teberda (North Caucasus, Russia). Two species, Rh. porifera and Rh. festucae Hadzibejli, 1959 are noted for the territory of Russia and neighboring countries. The morphological variation of these species is discussed.
