A new system of higher taxa of Baikalian amphipods is proposed. This fauna forms a monophyletic part of the superfamily Gammaroidea Leach, 1814 (sensu Bousfield, 1977) and now comprises: Acanthogammaridae Garjajeff, 1901 (with the subfamilies: Acanthogammarinae Garjajeff, 1901, Abyssogammarinae n. subfam., Eulimnogammarinae n. subfam., Hyalellopsinae n. subfam., Odontogammarinae n. subfam., Plesiogammarinae n. subfam., Parapallaseinae n. subfam., and Poekilogammarinae n. subfam.), Macrohectopidae Sowinsky, 1915, Micruropidae n. fam., and Pachyschesidae n. fam. The amphipod fauna of Lake Baikal consists of 50 genera, 261 species, and 73 subspecies. One genus, 4 species, and 8 subspecies of Baikalian origin are endemic to the Angara River and one species is endemic to the Yenisey River delta. The total number of taxa of Baikalian amphipods is now 4 families, 8 subfamilies, 51 genera, 265 species, and 81 subspecies.
