One hundred two litter samples were collected from oak/hickory and maple/beech forests in the Ouachita Highlands of western Arkansas July 1991-June 1992. Berlese residues of these collections produced 17 families, 51 genera, and 56 species of spiders, and included 19 species previously unreported for the state of Arkansas.
