Systematics of Nearctic Cybaeus (Araneae : Cybaeidae)
It is suggested that North American Cybaeus species are contained in two broad clades, one Holarctic and one Nearctic (primarily Californian), which contain mostly widely distributed species.
Araneae of Canada
The national and regional increases reflect significant advances in the first two decades of the 21st Century in spider faunistics research in previously under-sampled habitats and regions and the development of molecular techniques and consequent barcoding of spiders.
Cybaeus (Araneae: Cybaeidae): the Nearctic species of the Holarctic clade.
The Nearctic species of the Holarctic clade of these common moist-forest spiders are reviewed, including four new species endemic to the western Nearctic: C. rothi Bennett sp.
Cybaeus (Araneae: Cybaeidae): the adenes species group of the Californian clade.
The adenes species group of the Californian clade is reviewed, finding nine species of the adenes group have extremely restricted ranges in west central California from Sonoma and Napa Counties south to northern Monterey County and in eastcentral California from Placer and El Dorado Counties.
Pervasive associations between Cybaeus spiders and the bacterial symbiont Cardinium.
Cybaeus (Araneae: Cybaeidae): the aspenicolens species group of the Californian clade.
The species of the aspenicolens group have very restricted distributions on the western slopes of the central and southern Sierra Nevada mountain range from Tuolumne County south to northern Kern County in east central California, U.S.A.
Cybaeus (Araneae: Cybaeidae): the consocius species group of the Californian clade.
The species of the consocius group, a group of common moist-forest spiders classified in Holarctic and Californian clades, are reviewed, with descriptions, illustrations, distribution maps, and an identification key provided.
Effect of disturbance and distance from a riparian corridor on spiders in a temperate rainforest.
In anthropogenically disturbed forested riparian ecosystems that contain vagile organisms, we expect dispersal to be a factor that determines patterns of diversity that differ from similar, but con...
Allocybaeina littlewalteri (Araneae: Cybaeidae): a new genus and species endemic to northwestern California.
Allocybaeina Bennett gen. nov. is described, a distinctive new genus and species restricted to forested habitat in a small area of the coastal watersheds of southern Humboldt and western Mendocino Counties in northwestern California, U.S.A.
Apostenus ducati (Araneae: Liocranidae) sp. nov.: a second Nearctic species in the genus.
Apostenus ducati sp. nov. is described from montane areas in or adjacent to the Columbia River basin of southeastern British Columbia in Canada and northern Washington and northwestern Montana in the…
