Arkansas Jumping Spiders (Salticids)


List predicted from the present North American list and their known geographies. See the Peggy Dorris survey of Arkansas spiders completed in 1985 for many confirmations. Names and generic revisions are as up to date as I have them (quite a few changes from 1985). Some names are linked to internet sources where available. Sexes differ remarkably in some species. Internet shots are linked to male and female in some instances.  Numbers in brackets show number of US species. Names and genera updated again 10/05 with the publication of the Spider of North America: Ubick, Paquin, Cushing and Roth. The actual taxonomic listing is now so confusing that I am going to leave them in this order which sort of follows the original Kaston ordering.
