A new species, Dictyna palmgreni sp. n., is described from Finland and Russia on the basis of both sexes. Most of the earlier records of D. schmidti Kulczyński, 1926 from the northern Palaearctic refer to this new species. D. shilenkovi Danilov, 2000, syn. n. from Cisbaikalia is synonymised with D. schmidti. Te general appearances and copulatory organs of D. palmgreni sp. n., D. schmidti and D. major Menge, 1869 are illustrated. The distribution of D. palmgreni sp. n. and D. schmidti is clarifed. An unknown sac-like structure of the spermathecae of Dictyninae is briefy discussed.
