NOTES:

 

1. The assignment of spider species to families is the subject of considerable debate among araneologists.  Ideally the higher taxonomic categories (genera, families) represent our best current estimates of phylogenetic (evolutionary) relationships among groups of species. Some workers would assign a number of spider genera  listed here under Dictynidae (Cicurina), Hahniidae (Calymmaria), and Cybaeidae (Cybaeus) to Agelenidae. If you use the common keys (Roth, Kaston) these spiders will all key out to Agelenidae.  I have followed the arrangement in Platnick (2013).

 

2.     I have “split” the older family Clubionidae into four families (Clubionidae, Liocranidae, Corinnidae and Miturgidae).  All of these clubionids will key to “Clubionidae” in the common identification aids but can readily be located in this list because their generic names have not been changed. Many species have recently been moved between the Liocranidae and Corinnidae (e.g. Scotinella).

 

3.     I have placed the two “subfamilies” of crab spiders as separate families, as is now the more common practice.

 

4. I have generally followed the names used in Norman Platnick’s recent volumes and his online world spider catalog (Platnick 1989, 1991, 1997, 2013). This compendium (frequently revised) is now available online and this represents the most up-to-date listing of spider species.  For the sheetweb weavers (Linyphiidae) I generally follow Buckle et al. [2001].  For the jumping spiders (Salticidae) I generally follow Richman and Cutler (1978) with additional revisions by Maddison (1996).

 

5. Common names are included in bold face type where the committee on common names of the American Arachnological Society has provided a name (fewer than 20% of the species on this list).

 

6. A list of species that are not likely to breed in Ohio but have been found in produce or other imported materials is included at the end of this list.  A fairly large number of other species have been introduced by human activities and are “naturalized” but are not indicated as such here.
