Phylogeny of extant nephilid orb‐weaving spiders (Araneae, Nephilidae): testing morphological and ethological homologies
The Pantropical spider clade Nephilidae is famous for its extreme sexual size dimorphism, for constructing the largest orb‐webs known, and for unusual sexual behaviors, which include emasculation andExpand
