The faunistic data of the Muscoidea (Diptera) is given for following North Russian regions: Nenets AO, Yamalo-Nenets AO, Taymyr Peninsula, North Yakutia, Chukotka Peninsula and Wrangel Island. A list of species of the Muscidae, Anthomyiidae and Fanniidae, including new data on the distribution of some species in the Russian Arctic, is given. Seven species of Muscidae, 14 species of Anthomyiidae and five species of Fanniidae are newly recorded from Russia, including two species of Muscidae, five species of Anthomyiidae and one species of Fanniidae which are new records for the Palaearctic. A new synonym in the genus Spilogona Schnabl, 1911 is proposed: Spilogona obscura (Malloch, 1919) = Spilogona vikhrevi Sorokina, 2010, syn.n.
