New Brunswick Spiders


New Brunswick Spiders

There are enough species (too many!) that spiders deserve their own group. Hopefully we will be able to ID most but at least they will all be in one place.

For jumping spider (Salticidae) enthusiasts:

I just had a few of my salticid images in BugGuide removed from the subfamily Dendryphantinae as a housekeeping effort. Apparently that family has been eliminated based on a 2015 study (Maddison). Mine had been placed in that family, but were unidentified to genus. They are now in something called Unidentified-Eris/Metaphidippus/Pelegrina/Phanias (!!?). For more details, see the Info page for Salticiae.

I was wondering if the name of this group should be changed to "Spiders of the Maritimes" to follow the terminology used for many of the insect groups. In the same vein, perhaps the terminology could be formulated to be inclusive of other Arachnid groups such as Opiliones and Acarids?

For consideration,
