ABSTRACT. The first faunistic data on spiders occurring in the Kanin Peninsula and Kolguev Island, whence only three species were earlier known with certainty, are provided. Species lists consist of 75 and 25 species, respectively. Yet data on habitat preferences of the recorded species are given. A total of 86 species are currently known from the Kanin Peninsula and Kolguev Island. The diversity and activity of spiders in the studied communities are briefly discussed.

KEY WORDS: biotopic distribution, species list, tundra, Low Arctic, distribution.
