Checklist of the spiders (Araneae) of Canada and Alaska

  title={Checklist of the spiders (Araneae) of Canada and Alaska},
  author={Pierre Paquin and Donald J. Buckle and Nadine Dup{\'e}rr{\'e} and Charles D. Dondale},
This checklist records the occurrence of 1413 species of spiders (Araneae) in 43 families in Canada and Alaska. Distributions of species are given by state, territory and province. Each species name is presented in its original combination, followed by primary synonyms, if any. The list is dominated by members of the family Linyphiidae (39.5% of total species). Highest numbers of species are recorded for Ontario (746), British Columbia (700) and Quebec (677). We record 69 species that are… 

Spiders of the southern taiga biome of Labrador, Canada

Ad hoc collections of spiders were made in August and early September 2003 and pitfall trap collections were conducted from June to October in 2004 and 2005 in southern Labrador. These collections

More and more strategic investment in surveys and taxonomy (including DNA barcoding) is needed to adequately document the fauna, and much work remains before the Canadian fauna is fully documented.

A new species of Alopecosa (Araneae: Lycosidae) from Canada: a morphological description supported by DNA barcoding of 19 congeners.

DNA barcode results show an interspecific distance of 0.93 between A. koponeni sp.

The semi-aquatic spider genus Dolomedes (Araneae Pisauridae) in the Canadian Maritime Provinces

The fishing (dock or wharf ) spiders ( Dolomedes spp. Latreille, 1804) of the Maritime Provinces of Canada were surveyed through a combination of new collecting and examination of specimens from the

Linyphiid spiders (Araneae, Linyphiidae) from caves of Morocco

Nine species of linyphiid spiders are recorded from caves of Morocco, four of which are described as new to science: Diplocephalus inanis sp.

Demystifying three species of Ctenidae (Arachnida: Araneae) described by Embrik Strand. Part I, Ecuador.

This paper is the first of two papers on Embrik Strand’s mysterious Ctenus species, and includes redescriptions and illustrations for the first time of the three Ecuadorian species and the four Brazilian species.

Reassessment of the genus Maro O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1907, with the description of a new genus (Aranei: Linyphiidae)

The species composition of the micronetine spider genus 1907 is reconsidered, the diversity being restricted to 13 species and a new monotypic genus, Boreomaro gen.n.

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.

Taxonomic notes on Amaurobius (Araneae: Amaurobiidae), including the description of a new species.

A new species, Amaurobius caucasicus sp. n., is described based on the holotype male and two male paratypes from Eastern Georgia. A similar species, A. hercegovinensis Kulczyński, 1915, known only

Epigeal Spider (Araneae) Communities in Moist Acidic and Dry Heath Tundra at Toolik Lake, Alaska

Eight new state records and five extensions of previously described ranges for spider species are presented, fit the general pattern of both the patchiness and habitat specificity of arctic spider fauna.
