1. In Mexico, most forest habitats have been lost, leaving mostly agroecosystems such as coffee plantations. In some areas, coffee plants are commonly planted under a closed canopy of shade trees and sometimes these coffee plantations are transformed into cattle pastures, in which scattered and isolated trees remain. 2. Isolated trees (i.e. trees w...

The genus Tenedos O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1897 is the most diverse among Neotropical Zodariids. It is composed of 44 species, fourteen of which occur in Brazil, while in Colombia, the diversity of the genus is poorly known, with only seven species recorded for the country. Based on genital morphology, several species groups can be distinguished withi...

A new species of the genus Tenedos O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1897 belonging to the barronus group is described and illustrated based on both sexes. Tenedos barbarae sp. n. is described from Serranía del Perijá in Cesar department, Colombia. Specimens of the new species were collected during a standardized sampling in a landscape of tropical dry forest....

Mientras el cine, la literatura y los mitos han contribuido a la percepción errónea de las arañas como seres siniestros que habitan en lugares lúgubres y oscuros, nuestra convivencia con ellas y la importancia que tienen para la salud de los ecosistemas pasan desapercibidas. Además de describir a estos maravillosos seres ancestrales y su relación c...

Within tree canopies, vascular epiphytes create habitats for other taxa, and their heterogeneous spatial distribution could affect the distribution of organisms associated with them, such as spiders. This study was performed in shade trees of a rustic coffee plantation located within a Tropical Cloud Forest region of Mexico. We used a spatially exp...

In this study, we describe a new low‐cost technique to collect plant‐inhabiting arthropods at a height of up to 10 m without the need for specialized and complicated methods such as rope climbing or fogging. We present a model to build and apply the technique in a tropical forest understory. This technique is important because it is not only effici...

Wasps of the family Pompilidae are recognized for their specialization in spider hunting, where females actively look for spiders to feed their offspring. However, both hunting and nesting behavior are remarkably variable among species. Such variations include different strategies like solitary nesting, communal aggregations or cleptoparasitism. No...

Vertical stratification of weaver spiders (Araneae) in fragments of tropical dry forest from Colombian Caribbean. Spiders have managed to colonize most terrestrial environments, being common in forests. This group has been reported from the ground to the canopy and their vertical distribution patterns have been shown to be variable in different eco...

The genus Antillorena Jocqué, 1991 is reported in Colombia for the first time and A. sanjacintensis sp. nov. is described for the north of the country. This new species is diagnosed with the type species Antillorena polli (Simon, 1887). A taxonomic key and a map with the distribution of all species of the genus are included.

Six new Colombian species of Otiothops (O. besotes sp. n., O. doctorstrange sp. n., O. chicaque sp. n., O. vaupes sp. n.) and Fernandezina (F. andersoni sp. n., F. eduardoi sp. n.) are described. Diagnostic illustrations and distribution maps are provided for all of the new species, along with new records for O. macleayi Banks, 1929 and O. amazonic...

The temporal variation in abundance and some population aspects of sympatric spider species of genus Micrathena in a dry tropical forest fragment in northern Colombia between November 2012 and August 2013 were analyzed. A linear transects of 500 m length and 20 m wide were delimitated, where 10 points were installed spaced 50 m. In each point, spid...

The temporary variation of the composition and structure of arachnofauna in the Reserva Campesina La Montaña (RCM), department of Atlántico, Colombia was analyzed. Ten samples were taken between November 2012 and August 2013 in order to cover the dry and rainy seasons. A 500 m long, 20 m wide linear transect was delimited, where 10 sampling points...
