Three species of the family Cephalobidae and one species of the family Plectidae sampled on Spitzbergen were studied by scanning electron microscopy, which provided additional information on external morphology. Acrobeloides tricornis (Thorne, 1925) Thorne, 1937 was found to possess five incisures in the lateral field, rendering its differentiation from some other species of the genus less clear. The lip region morphology of Chiloplacus saccatus Loof, 1971 was found to be very similar to that of Acrobelophis minimus (Thorne, 1925) Andrássy, 1984 and the validity of the latter genus is discussed. Eucephalobus arcticus Loof, 1971 was found to possess cephalic and labial probolac and is proposed as a junior synonym of E. mucronatus (Kozlowska & Roguska-Wasilewska, 1963) Andrássy, 1967. The complex anterior structure of Ereptonema arcticum Loof, 1971 was compared with that of Tylocephalus auriculatus (Bütschli, 1873) Anderson, 1966.
