ABSTRACT. An annotated list of 6 species of the Calliphoridae collected from Wrangel Island in the period of 2006–2016 is given of which five species, Calliphora genarum (Zetterstedt, 1838), C. stelviana (Brauer et Bergenstamm, 1891), C. subalpina (Ringdahl, 1931), Cynomya mortuorum (Linnaeus, 1761) and Protophormia terranovae (Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830) are newly recorded from there. Considerable differences between species composition in the same districts of Wrangel Island in 2006 and 2015 were recorded; possible reasons for this are discussed.
KEY WORDS: blowflies, Wrangel Island, tundra zone, new records, fauna, climatic change.
