The present study is devoted to 23 salticids under 20 genera recorded from the tea estates of Dooars, West Bengal, India. Of these, Cheliceroides brevipalpis is considered as new to science; Cocalus murinus Simon, 1899 and Phaeacius fimbriatus Simon, 1900 are new from India. The former two genera are the first records from the country. While providing diagnosis of the newly recorded genera, description and necessary illustrations of the new species are also provided. Recorded genera and species are suitably keyed together with relevant illustrations. Lyssomanes sikkimensis Tikader, 1967 is considered as the junior synonym of Telamonia festiva Thorell, 1887.
