Abstract

Taiga bog arachnids, mainly collected in pitfall or pan traps, are compared for two Manitoba regions, one southern and one northem. The dominant spider families in the south are Lycosidae, Clubionidae, and Erigonidae, whereas in the north they are Erigonidae, Lycosidae, Linyphiidae, and Gnaphosidae. The southern taiga bog has 82 species, the northern taiga, 39 species, with 16 species common to both regions. Two opilionid species were collected in the south and none in the north.
