ABSTRACT. A check-list of 296 spider species of 152 genera and 27 families collected from Kirov Area is presented. Of them, 234 species are new to the studied region. Local faunistic data and a distribution pattern of each species are provided. The records of Pardosa monticola and Agyneta cauta from Kirov Area are shown to be misidentifications, while those of Robertus scoticus and Xysticus ninnii remain doubtful.
