The abundance of order Opiliones was higher in July, in the older semi-coke heap but the highest in the residues mix heap.
Members of the families Tetragnathidae, Amaurabiidae, Salticidae and Pisauridae and of the order Opiliones were observed almost exclusively in areas of the cave with low gas concentrations and on substrates with a measured pH of nearly neutral and thus inhabited a more limited spatial range within the cave.
