Abstract

The spider group Haplogynae is represented in Bulgaria by 44 species belonging to six families. The Bulgarian haplogyne spiders are classified into 17 zoogeographical categories, which are grouped into five chorological complexes: Cosmopolitan, Holarctic (widely distributed), European, endemic, and Mediterranean. Most diverse are the widely distributed European–Caucasian species but endemics (25 %) are the most characteristic. Analysis of vertical distribution shows that the haplogyne spiders are distributed in all natural habitats of Bulgaria but prefer lowlands and the lower mountain belts, mainly inhabiting xerothermic oak forest
