Four contributions to the arthropod fauna of Nordtirol (Austria) are presented: on spiders (2), rove beetles (3) and on pill millipedes (4), together with new localities (1) for centipedes and earwigs. (1) From urban habitats are recorded 3 centipedes together with 2 Dermaptera: 2 casual introductions (Scutigera coleoptrata (L.), Scolopendra cingulata LATR.), Lamyctes fulvicornis MEINERT, Apterygida media (HAGENBACH), Labia minor (L.). New localities are given for Anechura bipunctata (F.), an earwig occurring in the Alps only discontinuously. (2) Spiders. (i) The list of myromecophilous spiders from Nordtirol includes 6 species, Erigoninae (4), Linyphiinae (1), Agelenidae (1). 4 of them are occurring widely also in the lowlands of mid Europe, 2 species were known previously from the Carpatian mountains (Syedra myrmicarum (KULCZ.)) and from the Pyrenees (Diastanillus pecuarius E.S.) respectively. (ii) In an urban garden at the periphery of Innsbruck 53 spider species were caught with pitfalls together with 6 Opiliones. This site apparently is a small habitat island, allowing up to now survival of meadow spiders and of some species of xerothermic sites avoiding human impact. (3) Staphylinidae: A list of 69 rove beetles from cultivated land near Innbruck (Rinn 900 m) is given, with comments on phenology and collecting sites. (4) Glomerida: A critical list of the Glomerida of Nordtirol with referrences to the literature since 1884 includes 8 species (1 Glomeridella, 5 Glomeris, 1 Onychoglomeris, 1 Trachysphaera) and 5 further species with doubtful and insufficient records only. Glomerida are restricted almost entirely to natural habitats, distribution in altitude from lowland to the timberline and in alpine grassland.
