During our research, we surveyed the ground-dwelling spider fauna of the Szalafő Forest Reserve (ER-53, Hungary) by pitfall trapping. The research was conducted in 2014 from April to October. We collected data from three different habitats: mixed deciduous stand, mixed deciduous stand with Scots pine (both in the core area), and mixed Norway spruce stand in the protective zone. Our goals were to assess the ground-dwelling spider assemblages of the habitats, compare their spider fauna regarding species composition, diversity indices and guild structures. We determined that the two deciduous forest patch had the most similar ground-dwelling spider assemblages, while the communities of the spruce stands were somewhat different.
