Field and Laboratory

Publication Date



Little is known of the. Araneida of the Southwest. The Peckhams (1909) made an excellent report on the jumping spiders of Austin, Te:x:as, and vicinity. The report on "Oklahoma Spiders" by Banks, Newport, and Bird (1932) is also helpful. This is particularly true for the northern part of Texas, for many of our species are listed in that report. Other miscellaneous publications, such as those on new species by W. J. Gertsch (1932-33) have added to our knowledge of the spider-fauna of this section. The present report is an abstract of a preliminary survey of Dallas County Araneida. The work begun in October, 1934, was continued through June, 1935. Throughout the entire period, collections were made in as widely diverse habitats as the county afforded.
