Dmitry Evstratievich Kharitonov (Russian: Дмитрий Евстратьевич Харитонов; 1896-1970),[1] also spelt Charitonov,[2] was the first native Russian arachnologist.[1] In 1916 he founded the arachnological school of Perm State University, the oldest arachnology research group in Russia.[1] The culmination of his work was the comprehensive Katalog der russischen Spinnen (en: Catalogue of Russian spiders), published bilingually in 1932, with an addition published in 1936.[1] He grew up under the supervision of Dmitry Mikhailovich Fedotov, an arachnologist from St. Petersburg.[1] One of his postgraduates, T.S. Mkheidze, has been working in Georgia since the 1930s.[1]
