Two volumes: Text + Plates. Mike Roberts’ renowned line drawings combine with John Murphy’s extensive knowledge of worldwide spiders in this important new atlas of spiders of the world. Typical genera of every family of spiders (115 families on 327 plates) are depicted as their habitus, together

with detailed illustrations of eye pattern, tarsal claws, setae types and, especially, spinneret and spigot morphology. The authors also present a groundbreaking new classification scheme based on the evolution of the spinning organs. This significant work is destined to become a classic reference for all arachnologists and anyone interested in spiders of the world.
