Two Additional Spider (Arachnida: Araneida) Families for Trinidad and Tobago

Jo-Anne Nina Sewlal


Currently there are 47 recorded spider families for Trinidad and Tobago as given by Sewlal and Cutler (2003), Cutler (2005) and Sewlal and Alayón (2007). During a review of the spider collection for Tobago housed at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., in July 2008, a specimen, Drymusa nr. nubila from Drymusidae was recorded. Sewlal and Cutler (2003) gave a brief description of this family and had suggested that the family might exist in Trinidad. I can now confirm its existence.
