New data on spiders and harvestmen (Arachnida: Aranei and Opiliones) of Shantar Island in the Sea of Okhotsk, Russia

Number: 484, Pages: 17 - 21

Thirteen spider species in six families and a harvestman species are reported from Bolshoi Shantar Island. Twelve of spiders and harvestmen are new to the island. Yet, despite the genera Alopecosa Simon, 1885 and Thanatus C.L. Koch, 1837 and the family Philodromidae having also been collected from the Archipelago, they are represented by juveniles that cannot be identified to species level. Distribution ranges of all species are commented. All records lie within the known species ranges except for Gnaphosa montana (L. Koch, 1866), of which record from the Shantar Island represents the easternmost limit of the species range.
