The study ofthe Brazilian cave fauna began with A. R. Ferreirak observations on the 18th century. Few data (mainly descriptions of new species) were published until 1980. Since then, important new data on the knowledge of the cavernicolous fauna have been published due the regional surveys made in Vale do Ribeira, Bambui and Altamira-Itaituba Speleological Provinces. A list of 613 taxa (537 invertebrates, 76 vertebrates) from 282 caves, based on bibliography and original data is presented. Informations on ecological evolutionary classiJcation, feeding habits, bibliography and collecting localities are provided.
