Abstract
A survey of bdelloid rotifers from moss and lichen samples collected in the middle Arctic tundra subzone of Spitsbergen (Svalbard) revealed an unexpected high species richness of 52 taxa, of which 18 fully identified species are new for the region. About one-fifth of the European bdelloid species are present. Moisture regime and geographic localization of the moss appeared the most important ecological features driving differences in species composition between samples.
