Abstract

A review of material collected between 2002 and 2009 in the collection of Dr. Sewlal revealed a specimen belonging to the Titanoecidae collected from deciduous seasonal forest in Chaguaramas. Sewlal and Cutler gave a brief description of this family and suggested its presence in Trinidad, which is now confirmed. The confirmation of this family brings the total number of spider families known from Trinidad and Tobago to 50.
