Spiders living on the forest floor in six old taiga forests were studied using pitfall traps in 1994 (in Suomussalmi) and 1995 (in Puolanka), central-eastern Finland, ca. 65° N. Seventy-seven species belonging to eleven families were caught. Linyphiidae (s. lat.) dominated both in species and individual numbers. The most common species were Lepthyphantes alacris, Agyneta ramosa, Lepthyphantes antroniensis, Centromerus arcanus and Agyneta subtilis. The fauna found is, in general, typical of old Finnish boreal forests.
