A detailed redescription of a female Podocinum catenum Ishikawa, 1970 is provided with the aid of SEM microscopy. P. catenum is recorded for the first time from Western Siberia. Our finding is the northernmost locality for the family Podocinidae (57°21′N). A key to the species of Podocinum occurring in Asian Russia is provided.
