(Note to admin.) Species page needed for Uroctea durandi.




Goodness, I’m glad you have the ID for most of these. Although I think I have seen this one before and I hope I would have realized, I’m not used to seeing Wall Spiders look like this – my first thought was some sort Euryopis. 😀


Hooray, a new family. And a new family that has THREE common names to list and figure out which to choose as a primary. I generally decide on the primary common name (what we see in parenthesis) based on how often the public searches. So in this case of Oecobiidae…we have wall spiders, flatmesh weavers and disc web spiders. “Wall spiders” was the overwhelming winner in terms of global search demand. And this is based on international search data, not just limited to USA.
