We present the first cladistic analysis focused at the tribal and subfamily le\el of the orbwea\'ing spider family Araneidae. The data matrix of 82 characters scored for 57 araneid genera of 6 subfamilies and 19 tribes (and 13 genera from 8 outgroup families) resulted in 16 slighdy different, most parsimonious trees. Successi\e weighting corroborated 62 of the 66 informati\e nodes on these cladograms; one is recommended as the 'working' araneid phylogeny. The sister group of Araneidae is all… CONTINUE READING
