Females weave silk egg-cases, each of which may contain hundreds of eggs. Main, Barbara York In web-building spiders, all these mechanical and chemical sensors are more important than the eyes, while the eyes are most important to spiders that hunt actively.
The mid gut bears many digestive cecacompartments with no other exit, that extract nutrients from the food; most are in the abdomen, which is dominated by the digestive system, but a few are found in the cephalothorax.
Journal of Experimental Biology. Gasteracantha mammosa spiderlings next to their eggs capsule. Non-entelegynes Archaeidae pelican spiders Austrochilidae Caponiidae Diguetidae coneweb spiders Drymusidae false violin spiders Dysderidae woodlouse hunters Filistatidae crevice weaver spiders Gradungulidae large-clawed spiders Huttoniidae Hypochilidae lampshade spiders Leptonetidae Mecysmaucheniidae Ochyroceratidae midget ground weavers Oonopidae goblin spiders Orsolobidae Pacullidae Palpimanidae palp-footed spiders Periegopidae Pholcidae cellar spiders Plectreuridae Scytodidae spitting spiders Segestriidae tube-dwelling spiders Sicariidae violin spiders, assassin spiders Stenochilidae Telemidae long-legged cave spiders Tetrablemmidae armored spiders Trogloraptoridae Trogloraptor marchingtoni.
Several Carboniferous spiders were members of the Mesothelaea primitive group now represented only by the Liphistiidae. Nearly 46, living species of spiders order Araneae have been identified and as of grouped into about families and about 4, genera by arachnologists.

Actinopodidae mouse spiders and relatives Antrodiaetidae folding trapdoor spiders Atracidae Australian funnel-web spiders Atypidae atypical tarantulas or purseweb spiders Barychelidae brushed trapdoor spiders Ctenizidae cork-lid trapdoor spiders Cyrtaucheniidae wafer trapdoor spiders Dipluridae funnel-web tarantulas Euctenizidae Halonoproctidae Hexathelidae funnel-webs or venomous funnel-web tarantulas Idiopidae Macrothelidae Mecicobothriidae dwarf tarantulas Microstigmatidae Migidae tree trapdoor spiders Nemesiidae funnel-web tarantulas Paratropididae bald-legged spiders Porrhothelidae Theraphosidae true tarantulas.
The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History. In fact, chelicerates’ only appendages ahead of the mouth are a pair of cheliceraeand they lack anything that would function directly as “jaws”.
The basic arthropod central nervous system consists of a pair of nerve cords running below the gut, with tue ganglia as local control centers in all segments; a brain formed by fusion of the ganglia for the head segments ahead of and behind the mouth, so that the esophagus is encircled by this conglomeration of ganglia.
The Science of Nature. The Book of Symbols.
In a few species, such as the Hawaiian happy-face spider, Theridion grallatorseveral coloration schemes are present in a ratio that appears to remain constant, and this may make it more difficult for predators to recognize the species. They live almost entirely within the bells, darting out to catch prey animals that touch the bell or the threads that anchor it.
The barbs cause intense irritation but there is no evidence that they carry any kind of venom. Cultural depictions of spiders. Pseudoscorpionida pseudoscorpions Solifugae camel spiders.
The basic radial-then-spiral sequence visible in orb webs and the sense of direction required to build them may have been inherited from the common ancestors of most spider groups.
Hence Attercopus and the similar Permian arachnid Permarachne may not have been true spiders, and probably used silk for lining nests or producing egg-cases rather than for building webs. Despite the relatively small central nervous system, some spiders like Portia exhibit complex behaviour, including the ability to use a trial-and-error approach.
Therefore, cultivated habitat hosted the largest number of spider families in the area of study while house dwellers hosted the least number of spider families. Probably the most recognized of the 10 most common phobias, arachnophobia is the fear of spiders.
Instead they release different pheromones that attract moth fliesand catch them with their front pairs of legs. American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. These hairs are fine setae bristles with fragile bases and a row of barbs on the tip.
Ant-mimicking spiders also modify their behavior to resemble that of the target species of ant; for example, many adopt a zig-zag pattern of movement, ant-mimicking jumping spiders avoid jumping, and spiders of the genus Synemosyna walk on the outer edges of leaves in the same way as Pseudomyrmex. The World of Spiders. When a male detects signs of a female nearby he checks whether she is of the same species and whether she is ready to mate; for example in species that produce webs or “safety ropes”, the male can identify the species and sex of these objects by “smell”.

Ecology of the true spiders (Araneomorphae) 
Unlike most arthropods, spiders have no extensor muscles in their limbs and instead extend them by hydraulic pressure. Most spiders convert nitrogenous waste products into uric acidwhich can be excreted as a dry material. The spiders eat the bolas if they have not made a kill in about 30 minutes, rest for a while, and then make new bolas. Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society. Other differences between the principal and secondary eyes are that the latter have rhabdomeres that point away from incoming light, just like in vertebrates, while the arrangement is the opposite in the former.
Aspects of Ecphrastic Technique in Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics. In conclusion, 19 different spider families are recorded in Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria, during this study. The upper sections generally have thick “beards” that filter solid lumps out of their food, as spiders can take only liquid food. The only known exception is a spider from Israel, Harpactea sadisticawhich has evolved traumatic insemination.
Baby spiders pass all their larval stages inside the egg and hatch as spiderlings, very small and sexually immature but similar in shape to adults. Arachne in Ovid’s Metamorphoses “. InSkylab 3 took two orb-web spiders into space to test their web-spinning capabilities in zero gravity. Although the fossil record of spiders is considered poor,  almost species have been described from fossils.
