This paper provides an exhaustive account of the Spider Fauna of Sikkim and reports a total of 91 species belonging to 48 genera under 19 families representing all the four districts of Sikkim. Among these, 17 species under 13 genera and 9 families are recorded here for the first time from Sikkim. Synonymies, distributional records both in India and abroad, detailed collection data are provided in addition to keys to all the taxonomic categories dealt with in this paper. At the end, a discussion is made regarding the species composition of Sikkim in relation to adjoining states.
