Mimetus hesperus has not been observed invading webs of araneids
, but araneids
occurred in low density in my field site (Table 1), so this may result from a difference in availability rather than ability.
Among nocturnal sympatric araneids
and tetragnathids, researchers have noted temporal and spatial segregation (Ward & Lubin 1992).
There was a significant decrease in the number of salticids and araneids
present after the prairie burn.
Three Palearctic (non-native) araneids
, Aculepeira carbonaria, Araneus triguttatus, and Zygiella montana were recorded from Wisconsin; Z.
Prey analysis of four species of tropical orb weaving spiders (Araneae: Araneidae) and a comparison with araneids
of the temperate zone.
Retreats of araneids
in higher strata do not play a significant role for hibernation of arthropods other than spiders.
The stabilimenta of Nephila clavipes and the origins of stabilimentum-building in araneids
Ladder webs apparently evolved convergently in araneids
and nephilids, perhaps in order to exploit new websites (trees) or food resources.
the frequency of mixed responses decreases only in favor of the tactic "no reeling," while in the theridiid lineage, it decreases sometimes in favor of "no reeling" (as in T.
The duration of a web building bout ranges from 3 to 5 h among the cribellate orb weavers to about 30 min among the ecribellate araneids
(Lubin 1986; Zschokke & Vollrath 1995a,b).
The species is not present in the collection of the Queensland Museum whichholds large numbers of tropical araneids
from Australia (O.
Disc stabilimenta occur in the webs of the araneids
Argiope argentata (Fabricius 1775) (Nentwig & Heimer 1987) and Allocyclosa bifurca (McCook 1887) (Eberhard 2003), and the uloborid genera Philoponella, Uloborus, and Zosis (Lubin 1986).
