Electronic Field Guide to Arachnids
Welcome to the Electronic Field Guide to Arachnids! Arachnids on this site can be found by searching for a common or scientific name, a taxonomic grouping, or by using a visual key. This guide is not exhaustive, but is meant to represent a variety of species found in Massachusettes. To learn more about arachnid taxonomy, life cycle, or identification, visit the Intro to Arachnids page. It may also be useful to see an overview of spider anatomy or find out what certain terms mean in the glossary. This guide was compiled by Jason A. Cohen and Susan Weiner for their Field Biology (BIOL32a) course at Brandeis University.
