Abstract:

This paper presents the faunistic results regarding the spider fauna (Araneae Ord.) encountered in the superficial underground environment of the Leaota Mountains. The gathering of spiders was carried out during 2014-2015 in surveys located in limestone and schists colluvial scree. We captured faunistic elements at depths of 1m, 0.75m and 0.5m in limestone MSS; in shale MSS we collected fauna only from the depth of 0.5m and 1m. As a result of our research, we identified 12 spiders species, of which 11 are new for Leaota. The Nesticus balacescui species was first reported in shale MSS.
