Size and motherhood of the spider Pholcus ancoralis (Araneae: Pholcidae) affects whirling and other defensive behaviors

TLDR
The inefficacy of whirling in this study suggests that this behavior may have arisen to defend against other salticids or other native natural enemies whichP.

Interações predatórias entre Pholcus phalangioides (Fuesslin) (Araneae, Pholcidae) e Loxosceles intermedia Mello-Leitão (Araneae, Sicariidae)

TLDR
Probably only the presence of P. phalangioides in the antropic environment is not enough for the maintenance of the Loxosceles populations in levels that do not cause risks to the human health, however the co-existence already takes the need of a resources partitionship and should be considered in management actions.

Remaining Cryptic During Motion — Behavioral Synchrony in the Proboscis Bat (Rhynchonycteris naso)

TLDR
Several traits have evolved to enhancethe bats’ cryptic appearance, including cryptic col-oration (e.g., the greenish wings of the foliage-roost-ing bat).

Contests between web spiders: patience as a strategy for successful invasion

TLDR
It is posited that newly introduced individuals, immersed in a population of P. phalangioides, persisted on the sidelines of the resident’s webs, and engaged in interspecific aggression only when the dynamics of the interaction were in their favor.

Spiders in motion: demonstrating adaptation, structure-function relationships, and trade-offs in invertebrates.

TLDR
This exercise uses spiders to investigate the concepts of adaptation, structure-function relationships, and trade-offs in spiders, and measures burst and endurance performance in several taxonomic families of spiders whose ecological niches have led to different locomotory adaptations.

Anti‐predator defences of Pholcus phalangioides (Araneae, Pholcidae), a web‐building and web‐invading spider

TLDR
The behaviours used by Pholcus phalangioides to evade its predators were studied with particular attention being given to a special defence behaviour, whirling, and there was no evidence that chemical stimuli from potential predators were important.

Anti‐predator defences of Psilochorus sphaeroides and Smeringopus pallidus (Araneae, Pholcidae), tropical web‐building spiders

TLDR
Anti-predator defence behaviours of Psilochorus sphaeroides from Queensland and Smeringopus pallidus from Sri Lanka were studied in the laboratory and there was no evidence that chemical stimuli from potential predators were important.

The biology of Pholcus phalangioides (Araneae, Pholcidae): predatory versatility, araneophagy and aggressive mimicry.

TLDR
Experimental evidence indicates that vision is of little or no importance in the predatory behaviour of P. phalangioides, and the behaviour of Portia, an araneophagic web-invading salticid, is compared and the results are discussed in relation to hypotheses concerning Salticid evolution.

Predatory behavior of the zebra spider, Salticus scenicus (Araneae: Salticidae)

TLDR
The zebra spider (Salticus scenicus) orients towards prey detected by its lateral eyes whenever the angle subtended by such prey exceeds 5.5°, and the probable optimality of this behavioral tactic is discussed.

Anti‐predator defences of a web‐building spider, Holocnemus pluchei (Araneae, Pholcidae)

TLDR
Bouncing, in which this web-building spider moves its body rapidly up and down while keeping its legs on the silk, was the most frequent response to disturbance and there was no evidence that chemical stimuli from potential predators were important.

Observations in nature of detouring behaviour by Portia fimbriata, a web‐invading aggressive mimic jumping spider from Queensland

TLDR
These detours of Portia fimbriata were longer and more complex than those previously recorded for salticids, and these are the first detailed records of detouring behaviour by a salticid in the field.

A review of the ethology of jumping spiders (Araneae, Salticidae)

TLDR
Five areas of salticid ethology are reviewed: predatory strategies, courtship, maternal behaviour, silk utilisation and mimicry, which suggests that colour is important in intraspecific communication in this family.

Predator‐prey interactions between jumping spiders (Araneae, Salticidae) and Phokus phalangioides (Araneae, Pholcidae)

TLDR
An experiment in which pholcids were artificially induced to whirl whenever the predator was near provided additional evidence that whirling is an effective defence of pholCids against predation by salticids.

Predator‐prey interactions between web‐invading jumping spiders and two species of tropical web‐building pholcid spiders, Psilochorus sphaeroides and Smeringopus pallidus

TLDR
Evidence is provided that whirling is an effective defence of Psilochorus sphaeroides and Smeringopus pallidus against web-invading jumping spiders.
