The trigonotarbid (Arachnida: Trigonotarbida) Pseudokreischeria pococki (Gill, 1924) from the Upper Carboniferous (Westphalian B) of Ryton-on-Tyne, Co. Durham, UK, is redescribed. The less well preserved Pseudokreischeria varia (Petrunkevitch, 1949) is regarded as a junior synonym of P. pococki and a new reconstruction of this species is presented. Pseudokreischeria itself is formally referred to the family Kreischeriidae Haase, 1890.
