An annotated list of 8 Opiliones species within 3 families, Caddidae (1 sp.), Sclerosomatidae (3 spp.) and Phalangiidae (4 spp.), recorded from the Sikhote-Alin Nature Reserve, the Far East Marine Reserve and Russky Island of the Russian Far East is presented. 7 Opiliones species are recorded for the Sikhote-Alin Nature Reserve, 5 species for the Far Eastern Marine Reserve, and one species, Oligolophus tienmushanensis Wang, 1941 (Phalangiidae), is recorded for Russky Island.
