The cribellate amaurobiid genus Taira, which is suggested to be most similar to the genus Amaurobius and some other related genera, is revised based on genital characters. Eight species, one from Japan and seven from China, are included. Five new species from China are described: T. cangshan, T. concava, T. latilabiata, T. obtusa, and T. sulciformis. Titanoeca decorata Yin & Bao 2001 is newly transferred to this genus and its male is described for the first time. Taira lunaris Wang & Ran 2004 is newly synonymized with T. liboensis Zhu, Chen & Zhang 2004.
