Morphology of protonymph of Bathyphantes eumenis

  title={Morphology of protonymph of Bathyphantes eumenis},
  author={L. E. Koch and Justyna Rybak and Romuald J. Pomorski},
The protonymph of Bathyphantes eumenis (L. KOCH, 1879) is described and illustrated. The description, including all morphological and sensory structures of juveniles, is the one of this kind for Araneae. Nomenclature of setae and other morphological and sensory structures is proposed. 


The biology of spiders.
An updated translation of the definitive text on spider biology by the author of the second German-language edition from Thieme Verlag. The writer places greater emphasis on ecology and systematics
Biologie et comportement de la larve et de la première nymphe de l'araignée Araneus suspicax (O. Pickard-Cambridge)
The development and behavior of the first instars (larvae and nymphs) of Ara­ neus suspicax were recorded at 25°C and motor activity, which is diurnal at the beginning of thefirst nymphal stage, becomes nocturnal toward the end.

A substance very similar or identical with that of the layer is found deeper within the leg in a spaceous lacunar system formed by further cell invaginations and extended extracellular gaps.
Coxal hair plates in spiders: physiology, fine structure, and specific central projections
Natural stimulus situation and the spike response to maintained deflection suggest that these hairs are used in proprioception and graviception, yet behavioral changes following selective hair-plate ablations are not very pronounced.
Compound slit sense organs on the spider leg: Mechanoreceptors involved in kinesthetic orientation
It is concluded that the spiders control also their walking distance kinesthetically, in the case of operated animals the mean “walking error” calculated from those segments lying before the “nearest point” increases by a factor of 4 to 5, as compared with intact spiders, whereas it remains about the same at the ”nearest points” itself.
