Abstract

The spiders reported in this paper were collected by Professor H. E. Jaques and his students in the summer of 1940. From this collection twenty-five species and fifteen genera representing seven different families have been determined. Of the one hundred and twenty-eight 'individuals reported, there are sixty-three males, sixty-three females, and two immature. These spiders came from twenty-nine counties; their geographical distribution is indicated in Plate 1. All determinations were checked by W. J. Gertsch of the American Museum of Natural History, New York City, and it is a pleasure for the authors to acknowledge their appreciation of Dr. Gertsch's assistance. It is believed that this report includes many of the more common species of Iowa spiders and, therefore, should be of special assistance to high school teachers and pupils interested in the identification of these interesting animals. The families as well as the species are briefly described. Furthermore, several simple figures, a brief glossary of terms, and a bibliography are included for the benefit of beginning students of spiders.
