Exploratory recruitment was investigated in an artificial experimental set-up on location in French Guyana. Groups of 200 freshly collected spiders of the neotropical social theridiid Anelosimus eximius were released on an open circular surface and offered a choice between two accessible shelters. Results indicated that a clear-cut collective decision was not always reached, unlike what we found using a different set-up in another set of experiments. Simulations were conducted using available… Expand
